HUNTINGTON (WVDN) – Andrew Feyh, M.D., and Emily Vore, M.D., two general surgery residents at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, were named the June Residents of the Month, announced Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean of graduate medical education.
Feyh and Vore started their fifth and final year of the general surgery residency on July 1.
“When reading the nominations of Drs. Feyh and Vore, a common theme emerged showcasing their excellent teaching skills and commitment to helping others learn,” Wehner said. “Creating a positive learning environment is exactly what we strive for at the School of Medicine. It is exciting to see our surgery residents rise to the occasion.”
Feyh was nominated by a Marshall medical student from the Class of 2023 for being “a kind and knowledgeable resident who takes multiple opportunities throughout the day to teach the student,” wrote Michelle Rueff. “He is a great example of what medical education should look like and how residents should nurture and guide medical students. He deserves credits and recognition for all the extra things he does in the hospital.”
Vore was nominated by Semeret Munie, M.D., associate professor and surgery co-clerkship director, who said, “Dr. Vore has exhibited leadership and initiative in medical student education by implementing the first medical student surgical boot camp course at the School of Medicine. The elective included medical students who matched into a surgical specialty, and they spent two weeks honing skills taught by Dr. Vore to prepare them for their first year as surgical interns. The vision of Dr. Vore to pass along knowledge to future peers exemplifies her commitment to the role of a resident.”
Feyh, a native of Lewisburg, West Virginia, earned a B.A. in Philosophy and History from West Virginia University and his medical degree from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Vore, a native of Washington, Pennsylvania, earned a B.S. in Biochemistry from Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania, and her medical degree from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.
Following their graduation in June 2023, Feyh will pursue a fellowship in surgical critical care while Vore plans to pursue fellowship in a pediatric surgical subspecialty. As part of their recognition, the residents received a plaque and shared a designated parking spot.
