PGY-3 Chief Residents 

Our PGY-3 Chief Residents are elected each year after a process of nominations from residents and faculty based on demonstration of leadership qualities and completion of successful interview process. The PGY-3 chiefs are actively engaged in teaching, recruitment, and administrative roles throughout the year. They serve as role models in the areas of resident scholarship, clinical skills and responsibility, medical and personal ethics and interpersonal communication and personal responsibility.
