Pete Pelletier '10 Receives Alumni Association Award
The Alumni Association recognized Pete Pelletier at the 2010 Dean's Reception with a plaque and a $500 gift for being an outstanding member of the Class of 2010.
The Alumni Association Award was established in 1990 by the Alumni Board and is presented to one individual who has, in the opinion of their classmates, demonstrated academic achievement, leadership ability, and community concern representative of an exemplary physician.
Pete's classmates wrote that he "shows compassion, not only in patient care, but also in all realms of medicine, with significant dedication to medical education, research, international work, culture, and student leadership". Below are a few more comments from the nominations submitted:
"Throughout medical school, Pete has also shown unusual dedication to medical education. Continuining with his background in Clinical Laboratory Sciences and skills set in teaching and tutoring students, residents, and fellows at Northern Michigan University and the Mayo Clinic, he served as a classroom assistant, supplemental instructor, and personal tutor for many medical students who needed help."
"He loves sharing his knowledge and tricks with fellow classmates, and he gets quite excited about doing so. Outside of the classroom, he also pursued other medical education opportunities by being a book reviewing for Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, as well as McGraw-Hill Medical, reviewing eight books thus far."
"Pete Pelletier is a talented, compassionate, loving, and intelligent individual; I am confident that he will go on to be the most wonderful physician that anyone could ask for."
Congratulations to Pete Pelletier. The Alumni Association wishes he and all his classmates success as they move forward into their futures.
