What does it mean to be named chief resident? It means that your program director has deemed you ready to handle additional responsibilities in residency training—such as mentoring and advocating for residents on your team, doing work to support overall residency program objectives, and other added leadership or administrative duties.

Generally, chief residents are selected by the director of a given residency program, but are occasionally nominated by their peers. They’re usually selected based on their clinical and leadership skills.
