JCESOM recognizes Cottrell as Resident of the Month


The Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine recognized resident in the department of obstetrics and gynecology Jesse N. Cottrell, M.D as the March 2016 Resident of the Month.

Vice dean for graduate medical education Paulette S. Wehner, M.D. said Cottrell was nominated for the award for his outstanding demeanor.

Cottrell is a Southern California native and received his medical degree from the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. Cottrell then went on to receive his master’s degree in theology from the Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California.

Cottrell attended the Master’s College in Santa Clarita, California where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences.  At the School of Medicine, Cottrell treats conditions such as encounters for normal pregnancies and Hyperlipidemia. Cottrell will complete his residency in June.

From there, Cottrell said he will begin a maternal-fetal medicine fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. Maternal-fetal medicine is the branch of obstetrics focusing on the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies. The fellowship is a three-year program and emphasizes on complicated pregnancies caused by high blood pressure diabetes and other maternal disorders and diseases.

By receiving the award for Resident of the Month, Cottrell will be rewarded with a certificate of recognition and a designated parking spot.
