Mark Fedor Mark Fedor, a resident in the Department of Neurological Surgery who graduated from the UC Davis School of Medicine in 2003, was awarded the House Staff Professionalism Award.

The award recognizes residents who, in the opinion of their nominating co-workers, exemplify the attributes of a professional. Distinguishing characteristics include "altruism, accountability, excellence, duty, service, honor, integrity and respect for others."

Numerous coworkers – professors, nurses and other health-care colleagues – commended Fedor for being consistently professional, helpful and respectful with colleagues, and always empathetic, calm and unfailingly kind with patients.

Fedor was described as "an excellent leader" in the nomination form submitted by David Moller, assistant professor of neurological surgery.

"I have met many amazing people throughout the hospital in my seven years here at UC Davis who have helped shape my education, and to whom I will always
be grateful."

From his time as a student, and through his internship and residency, Fedor has said he feels privileged to be able to treat patients.

"I have met many amazing people throughout the hospital in my seven years here at UC Davis who have helped shape my education, and to whom I will always be grateful," he says. "And I am grateful to have found a career which continues to challenge me on a daily basis and one in which I can make a dramatic benefit in people’s lives."

He soon will begin a pediatric neurosurgery fellowship at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he intends to care for children with neurological disorders. He also hopes to further his commitment by treating children in other parts of the world where access to such advanced care is limited.

"It’s been a pleasure to work with him," said James Brunberg, professor of neuroradiology, in his nomination form. That sentiment was echoed by colleagues within the departments of Neurological Surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and other departments with whom Fedor has worked.
