You could be a great surgeon and doctor and be crappy Chief resident. Callie is one of the best surgeon in her field and she was a crappy Chief resident.
Being Chief Resident is not about who is the best surgeon, is about who is the best leader and who has the ability to put surgery aside and do the administrative work that it is essential to being Chief Resident, it is also about who is the best teacher, which unfortunally none of them are. Callie was fired from being Chief Resident because she negleted the paperwork.
Meredith, Cristina and Alex love the OR too much, and they would have a hard time putting the scalpel down so they could do the residents schedules and papaerwork. Meredith has a hard time letting herself be heard by her peers, Cristina has a hard time standing up to authoritive figures and she would not put her scalpel down so she could go do paperwork. Alex is a excellent doctor and surgeron, and knows how to make himself be heard, however I don't if he is capable of putting surgery aside so he could do papework.
April nobody would listen to her, Cristina would eat her for breakfast, but she is good at the paperwork. Jackson could be good at it if he shows signs of being a good at anything, which he hasn't.
I think it will be between Mer and Alex but Alex will be in the end. I think Alex will be Chief of Surgery someday.
