Overview:

In this episode, Tiffany and Miguel talk with a panel of newly elected chiefs about their hopes, fears, and plans in their chief year. They share when they knew they wanted to be chief and who influenced that decision. The panel shares the legacies they hope to leave and how they think the chief roll will influence their careers after residency. The episode finishes with some tips for future chiefs and a promise to join EMRACAST for a debrief when this chief year culminates. If you think you might want to be chief, start finding ways to be involved and lead early but be honest with yourself and do it for the right reasons.

  • Be prepared for anything – who knows what will shape your chief year.
  • Seek Feedback. Be Humble. Lead by Example.
  • And if nothing else… it’s all about the fame and fortune
