Peter C. -P Char Award - 20162016 Awardee
Congratulations to Robert Hong, MD, Program Director for the Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Fellowship Program!

Dr. Hong has been the CVD Fellowship Program Director for the past six years and is the recipient of multiple awards including the 2013 Peter C. –P. Char Award. We recognize Dr. Hong not only for his leadership and dedication to teaching, but also for his care and commitment to the community and his trainees. As one fellow wrote, Dr. Hong will always “do the right thing at the right time”, something that stands out in what we do. Dr. Hong has a quiet “behind the scenes” leadership that keeps the team interwoven and sincere concern for the well-being and overall success of his trainees. This “constant pursuit of excellence”, as one person described him, is what speaks to his outstanding character.

Peter C. -P. Char was a highly respected attorney who represented residents and fellows in medical liability issues for over 15 years. Mr. Char was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He received his B.A. degree from Yale College and his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law. Mr. Char dedicated much of his practice to the defense and education of medical residents in the areas of risk management and medical malpractice. His memorial fund has been designated to honor residency program directors who exhibit excellence in teaching and dedication to graduate medical education, as Mr. Char did for most of his professional life. A $1,000 award will be given annually to a program director nominated by his or her colleagues and trainees and selected by the HRP Board of Directors.
