Tyler Pardee, M.D., Memorial Award

The Tyler Pardee Memorial Award was created in 2013 by the friends and family of Tyler Pardee, a 2010 graduate from the UCSD School of Medicine.  Tyler initially pursued residency training in Emergency Medicine in New York.  Sadly, after one year of residency training, he was diagnosed with advanced stage colon cancer, and returned to his home town of San Diego in order to receive comprehensive cancer care.   Tyler passed away at the age of 28 in October, 2012.

In establishing this award, Tyler’s friends and family would like to recognize a graduating medical student who best embodies Tyler’s personal qualities.  Tyler was an active, adventurous, and well-balanced young man with enormous concern for the well-being and happiness of others.  We remember him for his inspiring drive and energy, his enthusiastic and positive demeanor, his kindness to his fellow students and his devotion to his work.
