The Susan Brooks Award

The Susan Brooks Award is given annually to a resident and a faculty or administrative staff member who has shown exemplary services to his or her patients, colleagues, and the Boston Combined Residency Program community, and is the utmost example of service leadership within the residency program, just as Susan was for so many years.

This year’s recipients are Theodore Sectish, MD, and Katelin Blackburn, MD. We congratulate and commend the service and care of Dr. Sectish and Dr. Blackburn! Learn more about the recipients and their work.
