Chief Residents

Four residents are chosen annually to stay an additional year as Chief Residents. On a rotational basis, two of the Chiefs are always present at Mount Sinai Hospital, one at the Bronx VA Medical Center, and one at Elmhurst Hospital. These Chief Residents work closely with the Chair and the Vice Chairs of the Department of Medicine and provide leadership throughout the Residency Training Program. They are the liaison between the day-to-day workings of the House Officers, the administration of the Department, and the various hospitals. They have significant teaching responsibilities and are expected to be future leaders in Medicine.
