Reflections Hear what Slotnick Fellows Have to Say

Fellow, 1995

I am honored and grateful to have been awarded the Jim Slotnick Fellowship in 1995. The experience was invaluable. It afforded me the opportunity to obtain hands on experience with patient care. It taught me the importance of compassionate care when working with a diverse population. To this day, I refer uninsured patients to the Saban Community Clinic. The positive feedback from patients on the “top notch” services they received is a reminder of the necessity of comprehensive medical care for the uninsured.

The Jim Slotnick Fellowship reaches beyond its recipients. It invests in individuals 
that will rise to become compassionate and well rounded physicians effecting real change in their communities. Jim’s passion to serve his community is a testament of the immense impact he had.
