Congratulations to our newly elected 2023-2024 Chief Residents, Sara Arastoo, MD, Chase Barker, MD, Mariana Gomez, MD, MBA, and Jennifer Nam, MD, MBA!
"I am very excited to have Drs. Arastoo, Barker, Gomez and Nam as the Chief Residents for next academic year. It is a significant honor to be selected as a Chief Resident by your fellow residents and the faculty. I look forward to working with these four excellent residents as we continue to improve our residency program." said Jack Buckley, MD, Associate Clinical Professor and Program Director of the UCLA DAPM Residency Program.
To be selected to serve as a chief resident, they are voted on by their fellow resident physicians and faculty, with the top four being selected as chiefs. This leadership role comes with significant responsibility, including acting as liaisons between the residents and the faculty, producing the call schedule, mentoring co-residents, and contributing to educational and event programming.
Please join us in congratulating Drs. Arastoo, Barker, Gomez, and Nam as our new chief residents!
We would also like to acknowledge the exceptional leadership of our outgoing chief residents: Maryte Gylys, MD, MBA, John Kleinman, MD, Ramita Rahimian, MD, and Peter Schnaack, MD, MBE. Thank you for your dedicated service!
