An award was created to honor plastic surgery resident Marco Ellis, MD, (fourth from the left) for his contributions to increasing diversity initiatives at McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University. He was the inaugural recipient of this award on June 8. (The Marco Ellis Legacy Award for Diversity)
Marco Ellis, MD, chief resident of plastic surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, has had an interest in diversity programming since his days as an undergraduate medical student. When he entered his residency program at McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University in 2005, he wanted to create a similar amount of enthusiasm for minority presence here. “As an underrepresented minority diversity is important because you look for that sense of belonging, community, and mentorship when you decide to enroll in a program,†Ellis said.
He became involved with the McGaw Diversity Council in 2007, and assisted, and organized programming for some of their small initiatives, in addition to mentoring medical students. Ellis served as a great resource to the council, sharing his experiences and ideas to increase diversity at McGaw, and started a new foundation last year, Northwestern McGaw Underrepresented Residents and Fellows Forum (NMURFF).
For his extraordinary contributions in increasing diversity in McGaw programs, an award was created in his honor. (The Marco Ellis Legacy Award for Diversity) Ellis was the inaugural recipient of this award on June 8. “I was absolutely appreciative and awe struck when the award was presented to me, and, to have the award named after me was a surprise. I don’t see the work that I’ve accomplished on the Diversity Counsel as community service or volunteer work. I see it as part of my job as a physician,†Ellis said.
The award honors Ellis’ character, work, and commitment to diversity and will be presented annually to those who demonstrate an interest and devotion to improving the experience of underrepresented minorities on campus.
“We knew we had to honor Dr. Ellis because he was involved from the beginning and has always been reliable.
...
The idea for NMURFF came from Ellis and his time spent at Harvard University.
...
As Ellis starts his one-year fellowship in cranial facial surgery at Johns Hopkins, he hopes to stay in close contact with NMURFF, the organization he helped found. “It would be ideal to be at an academic institution where I can resume these administrative interests. It would be nice to come back to Northwestern because there are opportunities here,†he said.
