Generating graduates of residency training programs that are able, skilled providers in the ambulatory setting is a task that can no longer be left to chance. Recruiting and retaining excellent faculty in the role of medical resident clinic director must be a prime consideration for all residency programs expecting to train successful clinicians in the ambulatory setting. Although the roles played and the tasks expected of this person may vary from institution to institution, there is a baseline set of expectations, goals, and requirements that all persons in this position must have to ensure success for themselves and the programs they represent. By making the expectations of the medical resident clinic director explicit and by providing resources to meet these expectations, institutions will be able to attract and retain faculty who will successfully meet their educational and clinical goals.
