From the Director

First week of new chiefs!! A huge thank you and kudos to our 2021-22 Chiefs – Michael Burt, Dennis Narcisse, Jessica Regan and Nancy Yang, with special kudos to Mike and Nancy for outstanding chief grand rounds last week! If you didn’t get a chance to see them “live”, they are worth the watch on the recording.  Excited to have Grand Rounds back at 8 am on Fridays as well.  We will be using Friday at noon for professional development time (e.g. some timely meetings about career development, etc), for things like town halls, time to chat with the chiefs or program leadership and time for teams to take a break and sit outside for lunch.

WELCOME TO THE 2022-23 CHIEFS!!! Go say hi to Sara, Lonnie, Nathaniel and Ryan!!!

New interns start their GME orientation on Friday and are with us starting Saturday AM, with orientation and shadow time on Mon and Tues.  First day on the wards/clinics is Wednesday!!!   Congratulations to everyone on an outstanding year, filled with triumphs and challenges for sure – we are all extremely proud of each and every one of you.

Things TO DO…if you are interviewing, don’t forget to sign up for a mock interview with Dr. Pollak.  Universally, this has been rated as very helpful by our interviewing SARs.  Many thanks to the alumni council for funding this opportunity.   If you are a rising JAR, think about goals for JAR year and take time to check in with a chief, your advisor or me about those goals! 

Have a great week!!! Let’s go new academic year!!!
