Jonathan Nguyen, DO, Personal Statement

JonathanJonathan Nguyen, DO
Surgery, Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine

As a single resident, you feel helpless to change the system around you, but as a group you have a voice and weight to help influence change. Being members of CIR has helped me and my colleagues in at my hospital organize ourselves into a single voice, which has been both supportive to us as physicians and empowering.

In the coming year as I begin a Surgical Critical Care and Trauma Fellowship at Cooper University Hospital, I would like to work on increasing CIR membership and hospital coverage in order to promote our ability to influence changes for residents, attendings, and ultimately our patients.
