Being chief residents at VFM is a great experience. First, the leadership experience is exceptional as we 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. Second, we are looked to as the voice of the resident body and truly have the ability to impact the future education of family medicine residents at Valley Medical Center for years to come. In addition, the relationships that we have been able to establish with the faculty and administration have been wonderful. Finally, as chief, we have the opportunity to participate in free CME opportunities from leadership development to advanced diabetes management training…and who doesn’t like free?! 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.
