Second Annual $25,000 Honorarium for Exceptional Medical Residents to Accept Nominations in April 2015

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Medelita® has renewed a commitment to identify top medical residents in the United States who have exhibited leadership in their communities and stand out amongst their resident colleagues. In its inaugural year, "The Right Fit H.E.R.O. Honorarium" saw over 200 nominations and 50 of the top nominations were narrowed to 10 through a series of criteria, including an online voting process that saw over 10,000 votes from colleagues in medicine, friends, and family.  In its second year as lead sponsor, Teflon® Fabric Protector has matched last year's commitment to the Honorarium.

In 2014, Medelita awarded the honorarium to pediatric resident Dr. Kanani Titchen of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital/Nemours-AI DuPont Hospital for Children.  Past Resident Division President of the American Women's Medical Association, Dr. Titchen chose to use a large portion of the Honorarium to contribute to the launch of Physicians Against The Trafficking of Humans (PATH – see for more information), an initiative for which she is the co-chair and an strong vocal advocate in an effort to help her colleagues learn how to recognize victims of child sex trafficking.

"It is really unusual for residents to be recognized nationally and with a significant honorarium to pursue personal causes and to repay medical school debt. The Medelita H.E.R.O. Honorarium is the first recognition of the intense, unremitting, unforgiving schedule of residents and the amount of work we put in. I'm grateful that someone is seeing our potential and rewarding it. This motivates me to stay true to my passion for social justice and true to my 'right fit' for helping children," said Dr. Titchen.

This year the Honorarium expects to see a sharp increase in the number of nominations, which will begin a week after The National Resident Matching Program® "Match Day" at 12:00pm Eastern Standard Time on April 1st, 2015 via the Honorarium website at The goal of this year's program is to provide a rare chance for medical residents to share their stories and nominate their peers.

"Recognizing the human side of medicine is critical to motivate the medical millennial generation and to show appreciation for aspiring young physicians," said Eliza Lo Chin, MD, MPH, executive director of AMWA.

"These top residents highlight what inspires the confidence and aptitude of individuals entering all medical specialties," said Medelita founder, Lara Francisco, PA-C. "Medelita is proud and grateful to support Dr. Titchen's goals as a physician activist. Having worked 10 years in emergency medicine, I feel that I may have missed opportunities to help many children. I am one of the clinicians that could benefit from her educational endeavors," concluded Francisco.

The 2015 "TheRightFit H.E.R.O." Honorarium will begin accepting nominations for current U.S. medical residents on April 1st and is currently scheduled to announce the 2015 Honoree by May 13th. Please email for more information.
