Dr. Brewster is being recognized for several reasons. The first is her teaching and mentoring. She is a tremendous teacher of the resident physicians, always going above and beyond to teach on rounds, at the bedside, and in formal teaching sessions. Her teaching inspires passion within the residents and her energy and enthusiasm is palpable. She is a mentor to residents in multiple ways. Her patients absolutely adore her and she epitomizes the doctor-patient relationship. Watching her interact with patients inspires residents to be better clinicians. She is also a terrific example of a strong woman in medicine. She is not afraid to speak up and ensure that her patients get only the best care. Residents who watch Dr. Brewster stand up for her patients learn to do this themselves. Her teaching, modeling of the doctor-patient relationship, and passion for medicine are inspiring.
