As many American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) students and graduates prepare for the upcoming 2016 residency MATCH® cycle, we thought you’d find the following list interesting. More than 15 AUC graduates in the final years of residency training were appointed chief residents for their respective programs in 2015-2016. This means they’ve been tasked with additional responsibilities, like providing support to program objectives and serving as mentors and advocates for residents, among other added administrative and leadership duties.
Generally, chief residents are selected by the director of a given residency program, but are occasionally nominated by their peers. Chief residents are typically selected based on their clinical and leadership skills.
Check out the list below.
