Department of medicine resident chiefs recently led Grand Rounds, bringing another successful academic year to a close.


The annual resident chief lecture gave residency leaders the opportunity to introduce special projects completed during the year. Dr. Debra Bynum, program director for the internal medicine program, introduced each of them, recognizing their impact on the department of medicine and UNC as an institution.

“These chiefs have all been staunch resident advocates and patient champions,” said Bynum. “They’ve not only accepted change, but embraced it, with positive attitudes that have been outstanding. They’ve helped make my year very easy and fun.”

The one year in review lecture highlighted the following resident projects:

-Anthony Mazzella, MD, and Rosanne Tiller, MD, presented Multidisciplinary Bedside Rounds.

-Alyssa Tilly, MD, presented a Professional Development Coaching Program

-Russell Coletti, MD, presented Expected Practices Tool

-Hannah Bensimhon, MD, presented Social Determinants of Cardiovascular Disease at Wake Med’s Medicine Grand Rounds.

As the program came to a close, the chiefs invited Chair Dr. Ron Falk to the stage for a surprise gift.
