Chief Residents

Each year, two residents are elected by their peer residents to serve as Chief Resident during their PGY-3 year.

These residents function as liaisons between administration, faculty and residents; supervise coverage of call responsibilities; and work closely with the Residency Director, Associate Directors, and Coordinator to identify opportunities in the residency and seek prompt, effective, and workable solutions. In preparation for their responsibilities, they attend the UIHC GME Rising Chief Resident Seminar and also participate in the AAFP Chief Resident Leadership Program. The chief residents also have a major role in the recruitment process and will represent the program at statewide and national recruitment events.
