Inaugural MSM-Emory Cardiology Fellow Named
Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) and Emory University announce the joint MSM-Emory cardiology fellowship. Dr. Raquel Bennett is the first named fellow. This new opportunity is a significant milestone for Emory/MSM collaborative clinical education and research programs. Dr. Bennett will begin the MSCR program at MSM in July and will do research and clinic rotations at Grady. Dr. Anekwe Onwuanyi, attending cardiologist at Grady and credentialed at Emory Midtown, will serve as Dr. Bennett's primary supervising attending. For the research component, Dr. Elizabeth Ofili, ACTSI co-principal investigator, will serve as lead mentor. Dr. Bennett received her MBBS from the University of the West Indies and completed her residency in internal medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine. Dr. Bennett received the MSM Resident of the Year Award in 2006 and the Resident with the Most Outstanding Performance in Primary Care award in 2007. "This joint fellowship would likely not have happened without the relationship foundation and multi-institutional alliance of the ACTSI," said Dr. David S. Stephens, ACTSI principal investigator.
