Hoda Ilias, D.O. is Recognized Nationally by ACP

Fairfield Medical Center is proud to announce first year Internal Medicine Resident Hoda Ilias, D.O., as a top 20 abstract national winner in scientific research by the American College of Physicians (ACP).

Dr. Ilias prepared an abstract based on a case that Jeffery Yenchar, M.D., shared with her.
Dr. Yenchar mentored her through the preparation of the abstract, entitled, A Rare Case of Eccrine Acrospiroma Transforming into Metastatic Eccrine Spiradenoma. The abstract is among the top-tier scientific articles selected by the ACP in 2016.

Fairfield Medical Center’s Graduate Medical Education provides support for medical students, residents and physician assistant students going into the family medicine and internal medicine specialties. Key to the success of the program is collaboration with FMC’s medical staff and Six Sigma Green Belt training.

“Our medical staff, with the interest and support they demonstrate in teaching and mentoring our residents, is one of the major reasons our residency programs are on a steady track to continue to excel in educating our future physicians,” said Troy Edwards, D.O., F.A.C.O.I., C.M.D., Medical Education Director and Internal Medicine Residency Program Director.

Dr. Ilias will present her abstract and accept her scientific research award at the Internal Medicine Meeting on May 6 in Washington, D.C.

“We recognize Dr. Ilias’ initiative and applaud the cooperation and participation of Dr. Yenchar in supporting the further development of scholarly activity amongst our residents,” Dr. Edwards said. “Our Graduate Medical Education department also wants to thank and acknowledge all the medical staff for their ongoing support, participation, mentoring and teaching of our residents on a daily basis. Without their support, this program would not be possible.”
