Chief Resident Election of Emergency Department (CREED) – An innovative approach to fair and bias-free chief resident selection in a residency program
Emergency medicine has transitioned from developing to a developed specialty in Pakistan. It is gaining recognition in the national and international arena. Residency in emergency medicine is a tough pathway in which a resident learns and is assessed at multiple levels. The attributes that are needed for an empathetic emergency medicine physician are multifaceted. Chief resident selection has been an important step in postgraduate residency. The selection process was traditionally based on seniority and academic achievements with no consideration for soft skills. In the current write-up, we are proposing an evidence-base sequential chief resident selection process called Chief Resident Election of Emergency Department (CREED). The program was developed keeping in consideration the traditional method of election and interviews with the incorporation of reflexive, leadership, communication, and collaboration skills.
