Resident member wins AAFP award
TAFP resident member Nish Shah, MD, received the 2015 AAFP Award for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education for his hard work as a resident and commitment to the specialty of family medicine.
“My involvement with TAFP has been such a gratifying experience,” Shah says, “and has absolutely enriched my residency by allowing me to reflect on the political and social advocacy aspect of family medicine, and I cannot wait to further my experiences with TAFP in the years to come. I urge all residents who want the opportunity to get involved with TAFP to do so.”
Shah is currently the chair of TAFP’s Section on Resident Physicians and has previously served as a delegate representing TAFP at AAFP’s National Congress of Family Medicine Residents. He is a third-year resident at the Houston Methodist San Jacinto Family Medicine Residency program in Baytown and received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
