Each year, the Office of Professional Development within Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Department of Surgery honors two faculty members who exemplify an unwavering dedication to the department, their colleagues and the community with Outstanding Citizenship Awards. This year’s recipients are among Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s finest: Erika Rangel, MD, MS, FACS, who serves as Director of Surgical Critical Care and Inpatient Programs, and Quoc-Dien Trinh, MD, FACS, Associate Surgeon.
Outstanding Citizenship Award winners are chosen based on how well they demonstrate the following:
“I am so honored to receive this recognition of my work with women surgeons, particularly since I was nominated by my colleagues and I feel there are so many hard-working and dedicated surgeons in our department deserving of the award,” says Dr. Rangel.
Dr. Trinh is also honored to be named a recipient of the Office of Professional Development’s Outstanding Citizenship Awards. “I’m extremely appreciative of my colleagues in the Department of Surgery recognizing my clinical, operational and research efforts, especially with regard to racial inequity in cancer care,” he says.
