Congratulations to Nasim Zamir, Resident of the Month!
Nasim Zamir, PGY1, Internal Medicine
Nasim is a first-year resident in Internal Medicine in Saskatoon. Born and raised in Baku, Azerbaijan, he attended medical school at McMaster University after completing his undergraduate training at the University of Toronto. Outside of work, he spends his time with his co-residents exploring the city and the Canadian Prairies. His hobbies include programming, table tennis, soccer and travelling the world with his wonderful fiancée. He finds himself to be amongst a supportive and collegial group of residents and is honoured by the nomination. Nasim aspires to be an academic physician with a focus on medical education through technology, collaborative research and resident well-being.
Here are some of the reasons that Nasim was chosen as this month’s Resident of the Month (as quoted from the nomination letter):
“While in the hospital, he is a true professional.”
“When at home he is dedicated to his work and spends countless hours studying, creating tools to help his fellow residents, and working on research projects.”
“Above all these other exemplary features Nasim performed what some may call a heroic act earlier this year. He successfully resuscitated a passenger on an airplane thanks to his knowledge, skills and ability to be calm under pressure.”
The objective of this award is to promote resident well-being by recognizing and rewarding residents who make exceptional contributions, both in their academic field and in their extracurricular activities.
All RDoS members – with the exception of voting members of the RDoS Board of Directors - are eligible for the award, and can be nominated by anyone finding the resident deserving of the honour.
