“This award validates the countless hours of hard work, dedication, and passion I have poured into the clinical practice, clinical research, and most importantly, medical education for the last three decades,” Dr. Dalal said in his acceptance speech.

He’s been practicing for nearly 30 years and is affiliated with Corewell Health William Beaumont University Hospital and Corewell Health Beaumont Troy Hospital.
