"More than anything else, being a chief resident is a privilege.
"It is a responsibility to advocate on behalf of residents and to impact the training program in a positive and meaningful way. Chief residents are in a unique situation where we can effectuate a change through both our interaction with higher level administration and through the trust we've obtained from residents.
"Although it is a sacrifice of our time and energy, it also is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference. The best part about being a chief resident is being able to effectuate a change in the program to positively impact both resident well-being and neurology education. It really is a unique opportunity to give back to the field at such an early stage in our careers.
"The best advice I can give to anyone considering being a chief residents is that I think it is important to start by being the best resident you can be. Once you focus on that, it will establish the foundation for your future, even beyond being chief resident."
