Jonathan Nguyen, DO
Surgery, Rowan SOM
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 my colleagues and me organize ourselves into a solitary voice, which has empowered us as resident physicians and allowed us to enact change in our institution.
In the coming year, I would like to work on increasing CIR membership and hospital coverage in order to more fully represent residents and promote our ability to influence changes for residents, attendings, and ultimately our patients.
