ACEP and EMRA have announced winners and honorable mentions of the 2020 National Outstanding Medical Student Award program. This year’s honorees include Jennifer Mirrielees from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, who received an honorable mention.
As shared in her nomination, Jennifer’s strong commitment to service toward not only underserved patient communities, but to her peers, and her strong leadership in clinical and administrative capacities, embodies the heart of this award. In support of her candidacy, faculty commented on her strong work ethic, clinical efficiency, and her ability to form strong therapeutic bonds with her patients. “Overall, Jennifer is a superbly accomplished student. This is easy to measure when looking at her care for those in great need, her desire to lead and care for her peers, and her translation of this passion into the clinical environment in the ED.”
The Award annually recognizes up to five fourth year EM-bound medical students who excel in humanism, professionalism, leadership/service, research, and academic excellence. Award winners will be recognized at the EMRA Medical Student Forum in October and honorable mentions will be mailed a commemorative plaque.
