The awards recognize graduating students and faculty members who demonstrate both clinical excellence and outstanding compassion in the delivery of care and who show respect for patients, their families, and health care colleagues.

“Dr. Mohr has an unparalleled thoughtful devotion to upholding the highest levels of compassion, respect, and clinical excellence,” his nominator wrote. “When Dr. Mohr walks into a room, there is an instant sense of excitement, respect, and shared desire for excellence. He empowers every member of the team by respecting their professional expertise and ensuring everyone feels welcome to provide input.”

One of Felo’s nominators wrote, “She is a friend to everyone, a champion of all of us as her peers and future colleagues, and the most compassionate patient advocate I’ve met.”

Felo will do an internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Mohr and Felo will be honored at a virtual ceremony at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 6, along with fourth-year students who were selected last fall for membership in the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
