Leadership & Training Opportunities

Carolins HealthCare System (CHS) aims to prepare residents to serve as leaders in medicine and their communities. There are many different opportunities to serve as a leader as a resident in our residency program.  Our faculty members are leaders in our discipline locally, regionally and on a national level and love to mentor residents in their leadership roles.

Ways you can lead include:

  • Carolinas Medical Center House Staff Liaison Committee: Represent your fellow house staff and work with hospital administration on issues that are important to the day-to-day well-being of house staff and their working environment.
  • Family Medicine Inpatient Service Resident Leader: Work with hospital administration and nursing staff to ensure high quality patient care and optimal working relationships and communication between our residents and hospital staff.
  • Chief Resident: The residents elect two third year co-chief residents every year who serve as a liaison between our residents and our faculty as well as other residencies at Carolinas Medical Center (CMC), address issues of importance to resident education and well-being, ensure appropriate resident staffing/call schedules, and serve as mentors and role models to their peers.
  • Curriculum Committee: Open to any resident interested in helping to continually improve and develop the residency program's curriculum, to ensure the highest quality educational experience for our residents.
  • Graduate Medical Education Committee: One resident each year is selected from their peers to serve on this committee which addresses issues pertinent to residency program accreditation, in accordance with the ACGME/RRC standards. This is particularly pertinent to those who are considering academic careers in the future.
  • Family Medicine Center Management Team: Assist our Medical Director, practice manager and the administrative team with decision-making related to the operations of our family medicine center to ensure high quality patient care, patient satisfaction and physician satisfaction. Learn about practice management behind the scenes.
  • Resident Moonlighting Coordinator
