Angela M. Mills, MD, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

Moderated by: John Hurley, medical student, Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University

What you'll learn from Dr. Mills:

Congratulations on your new appointment at Columbia. What is the biggest difference you see between being vice chair and chair in your few short months in that role?
What are the biggest challenges you anticipate personally in your role and more globally as a chair/faculty in emergency medicine
Similarly to Deb Diercks, you also attended a residency known for larger than average number of chairs. How do you think attending the University of Pennsylvania ultimately influenced where you are today? Or do you think you would have eventually become a chair regardless of where you attended residency?
How should residents interested in administration position themselves to become a Medical Director or take on a similar leadership role in academic emergency medicine?
How do you think you made yourself the best candidate for your new role as chair and not that you wished to remain as vice chair?
