Left to Right: Dr. John Thomas, Dr. Sauda Bholat, Dr. Peter Moyer, Dr. Brian Linde, Dr. Sanjeet Baidwan

Chief residents for the Primary Care and Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Programs are chosen for their commitment to clinical and academic excellence, their leadership skills and their desire to contribute to and positively impact the lives of our trainees, the care of our patients, and the advancement of the educational mission of our training programs.  You will encounter them as attendings on the wards and in the outpatient practice, as presenters at Yale Medical Grand Rounds, and across all training sites of the residency programs.  With the enhanced primary care developments in the Primary Care Residency Program this year, we have expanded the number of chief residents to include a role as Chief Resident at the VA Center of Excellence in Primary Care and a Chief serving as our Global Health Chief Resident spending half of the year at Yale and half of the year abroad.  While each of the chiefs have unique areas of academic interest, all have strong commitments to social justice, health equity, primary care and patient advocacy.  They have leadership roles in helping our programs cultivate meaningful relationships with the community of New Haven and the organizations involved in the care of our patients outside of the medical center.
