Shayan Senaati, DO2021 Student DO of the Month
Congratulations Shayan Senaati, DO 2021!!! Here is what his classmates and peers had to say: “Shayan has been encouraging and inspiring to the class of 2021 since day one. He never hesitates to help his classmates and often courageously shares his personal experiences and offers advice regarding classes, difficult material, and first year in general to ensure we can all be the best student doctors we can be. He posts a weekly schedule of what to expect and always provides helpful resources. Shayan is humble, respectful, gracious, compassionate, very easy to talk to, and he has helped the class of 2021 realize that we are more successful when we support and help each other. I can’t think of anyone more deserving for Student DO of the Month.”

Elizabeth “Izzy” Pines has been named Student DO of the Year!
She has demonstrated an exceptional breadth of achievements during her brief time as an osteopathic medical student. Izzy excelled in the classroom, and tirelessly uses her skills to help those around her. Those who know Izzy would not think twice to describe her as someone who is driven, focused, altruistic, and humble.
One aspect of Izzy’s character that really stood out to us is her willingness to help her peers and aspiring physicians across the nation. Through the majority of her duration as an osteopathic medical student, Elizabeth helped her fellow students by sharing her experiences through “story time with Izzy”. During this time, she would elaborate on clinical experiences for first and second years, to not only keep them motivated, but also to help foster their education before going to their rotations. She also implemented a similar approach to her “Good morning report”, where she challenged her colleagues to learn how to ask questions and be inquisitive. There were countless instances where she also helped her colleagues during her time as an NMM/OMM Pre-doctoral Teach Fellow, all the while maintaining an incredible amount of humility about her work and outreach. She did not simply treat this as an 8-5 job, but took on more work in order to create novel ways to educate students in OMM, as well as re-structure the program in conjunction with faculty. Through her work in the WesternU OMM department, she has advanced the practice of OMT and shaped the future of osteopathic education, an incredible achievement for someone that is still a student.
