The Chief Residents at Valley Family Medicine are dedicated to fostering a program which runs smoothly and to the maximum benefit of both its residents and its patients. We train as medical leaders and have the opportunity to participate in weekly faculty and quarterly GME committee meetings, as well as be an active part of the hiring of new faculty members. We identify issues in program management through observation and our feedback from colleagues, and use our influence to craft elegant solutions to these issues. We are looked to as the voice of the resident body, but simultaneously working side-by-side with the faculty and administration to create an exemplary program. Overall, we know this experience as chief will be a formative opportunity that will establish a foundation of leadership in the healthcare setting for many years to come, as well as to promote the education of our fellow residents and to keep strong and vibrant a program which does so much good in our community.
