The American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS) are delighted to recognize Margo N. Carlin, DO, as the 2018 AOF/AOCS Outstanding Resident of the Year in Surgery.
Dr. Carlin graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2014 and completed an internship in anesthesiology at Larkin Community Hospital. She serves as Chief Resident of Larkin’s general surgery residency program and is also a member of the institution’s performance improvement committee. After completing her residency in 2019, she hopes to enter a fellowship in surgical critical care.
Of her chosen specialty, Dr. Carlin says “I consider medicine and surgery the great equalizer; the only true representation of humanity is through the care we provide for each other. And, I remain humbled every moment of every day that I have the privilege to partake in this field.”
Throughout her undergraduate and medical school education, Dr. Carlin’s achievements were regularly recognized with scholarships and awards. She is an active contributor to several ongoing research projects, and has had past projects accepted for publication and presentation.
Mohammad Masri, MD, Chief of Surgery and surgery residency program director at Larkin Community Hospital, says that Dr. Carlin “truly embodies the core values of osteopathic medicine. In combination with her passion for academic surgery, she is well on her route to become a future leader and influential role model in health care.”
