Congratulations to Dan Henderson, third year medical student at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, who was the national finalist in the first “Reach MD’s Next Top Doc” competition, held Aug 17 2009 in Washington, DC. Mr. Henderson competed with a group of medical students from across the U.S. in this quiz show-style contest, held over the last 15 weeks.
The other final competitor was Nina Resetkova, third year medical student and MBA candidate from Texas Tech University Health Sciences School of Medicine. As the winner, Dan was awarded a $5,000 educational scholarship, sponsored by ReachMD. He is currently spending the 2009-2010 school year at AMSA headquarters in Reston, VA, serving as an AMSA Health Justice Fellow and will return to Farmington in May 2010 to complete his fourth year of medical school.
The game-show style competition was created in 2009 by American Medical Student Association (AMSA) and ReachMD, a satellite radio channel for health-care education and information. Next Top Doc was introduced at the March 2009 AMSA annual conference. ReachMD has broadcast each round of competition live.
