1 definition by Chief Resident
An unsuspecting doctor who extends his or her time with the residency program to educate and represent residents. Part of their duties is to sit in on a million meetings of unknown significance; be expected to fix all manifestations of a violent or destructive natural force, such as a lightning strike or earthquake, that is beyond human power to cause, prevent, or control; and to be the one who is the bearer of all complaints, gripes, frustration, and anger from both residents and attendings when all they need is a stiff drink. Only tough souls apply.
e.g. "I can't fix my car. I'm going to call the chief resident."; "This sucks- call the chiefs."; or "The chiefs can do that." (when referring to the need for a replacement for last minute cancellations).
