Student Doctor Ariff Moolla receives Pediatric Distinguished Student Award

Message from the TUC College of Osteopathic Medicine

It is a great honor to announce the recipient of the prestigious Pediatric Distinguished Student Award  (for the Class of 2016).  This student demonstrated outstanding performance during their pediatric rotation, as well as supreme commitment to the specialty field of Pediatrics. 

Please join us in congratulating Student Doctor Ariff Moolla as our Distinguished Pediatric Student!  We look forward to having him as a colleague in the field of Pediatrics soon!

Per the Pediatric Core Rotation Syllabus:  “The Division of Pediatrics offers the Pediatric Distinguished Student Award.  This award is designed to honor a senior medical student who intends to enter a pediatric residency and has demonstrated superior performance in his or her activities as a medical student. Pediatrics evolved as a specialty because children have unique physiologic, biochemical, and psychosocial needs which reflect dynamics of change during growth and development. The recipient of the Pediatric Distinguished Student Award should demonstrate a sound grasp of these concepts as well as skill in applying them to the care of children. Awardees should have completed their pediatric core clerkship and demonstrated exceptional ability and potential for future contributions to the specialty of pediatrics.”

Congratulations, Student Doctor Moolla!
