June 6 — UC Davis Health Pain Medicine group recognizes P.A. student for excellence
Naileshni Singh, a physician and associate professor in the UC Davis School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, presented Neal Thaker, a second-year physician assistant (P.A.) student with the 2019 Outstanding Student Award in Pain Medicine. Neal completed a clinical rotation at the pain medicine clinic this spring. According to Naileshni, the department’s faculty “felt unanimous in their nomination” of Neal. This marks the first time any student, either P.A. or nursing, from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis was recognized with an excellence award from the pain medicine group.
