Recognizing Leadership: Brad Moore MD

For most of the past decade, our clerkship program has been led by Brad Moore MD, who crafted an outstanding learning experience for the many students who came to Summa for their IM clerkship, sub-internship or externship. Under Brad's guidance, the clerkship program has been recognized by students as a foundational learning experience, leading to successful residency appointments and fellowships. In addition, Brad has mentored young clinicians to live balanced lives, develop their own humanity and attend to the patient. Now, as Dr. Moore moves on to become Summa's Internal Medicine residency Program Director, he leaves a legacy of academic and educational excellence. Thank, you, Brad for all you have done to build a clerkship program that our students value and praise. Best wishes in your new role!
