Current Residents

Our program draws residents from many places and backgrounds. Feel free to contact any of our residents with questions. The Med/Peds Chiefs are two fourth-year residents selected by the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics who work closely with the chief residents of each department as the resident-administration liaisons. Responsibilities include making rotation schedules, recruiting new residents, and organizing didactics.
