SOM P2P Committee Recognizes Role Models at NYMC

The School of Medicine (SOM) Peer to Peer (P2P) Committee celebrates the exemplary students of NYMC with Professionals of NYMC, a forum for students to recognize each other as peer role models and showcase students who demonstrate the ideals valued most as future healthcare professionals. The initiative recognizes students in the NYMC community who embody the school's core graduation competencies, including outstanding acts of patient care, interpersonal and communication skills, collaboration and professionalism. It is the hope that Professionals of NYMC will inspire all members of the NYMC community to make a positive difference in the lives of others. One selected winner per class will receive recognition in their Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) during the application to residency process. Have you seen a classmate do something awesome and inspiring? Send your nominations to nymcp2p@gmail.com.

“This gentleman completed a very interesting research project on language barriers in timely management of cancer. A real take-the-ball-and-run-with-it attitude. Self-starter. He has submitted the paper to a national oncology meeting and is preparing it for publication…Quite impressive for a third-year student.”

“Matthew Findley will be a phenomenal attending one day. He treated me with respect and seemed very interested, intent and proactive about helping me to recover and be on top of what I needed to know. He took the time to really listen to what my complex medical issues were and I can't thank him enough for all of his help and compassion. A wonderful young man. It was a pleasure to see him each day and know only the best will come for him.”

“This young woman handled a case of a [young patient] with primary Ewing sarcoma with pulmonary metastases with exceptional skill and attention-to-detail. Very mature. I think she'll make a very reliable house officer.”
