Meet our 2017-2018 Chief Residents (PGY-4)
The chief residents at The University of Chicago serve as an important resource and provide ongoing support for the residents. They provide leadership and support and function as key mentors and advocates. They are dedicated solely to the education of residents and to the advancement of the program. Each come from different backgrounds, have different clinical and research interests, but share a common role for the upcoming year: they will serve as educators, mentors, and leaders in the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program.
