Lmps chief residents
During Program Orientation Week (or first program week), residents from the AdultPod and PedsPod will each appoint via whatever process they choose a Chief Resident for their pod. This role is distinct from the BC-wide Chief Resident who is elected via a separate process, although one resident could hold both positions.
