At last month’s black tie event celebrating this year’s graduating class of UCLA Plastic Surgery Residents, Dr. Cambre was honored to receive his third UCLA Plastic Surgery Clinical Faculty Teaching Award, bestowed by the graduating residents. Dr. Cambre also received the award in 2008 and 2012.
These awards are especially meaningful to Dr. Cambre, who himself was a proud product of the UCLA residency program, and has participated as a UCLA clinical faculty member at L.A. County / Olive View Medical Center since his own graduation.
“It has been my great privilege over the years to have been involved in some small way in the training of the next generation of UCLA Plastic Surgery residents, and to give something back to this very special program to which I personally owe so much. I salute this fine group of surgeons, and I thank my own mentors, most of whom are here with us tonight”, said Dr. Cambre in accepting the award from the residents.
