Notably, in 2020, she was selected as Chief Resident, a prestigious position awarded to the top 6 residents who exhibit not only exceptional clinical skills but also outstanding leadership abilities.
Dr. Axi’s journey continued with a commitment to a superspecialization in internal medicine, focusing on rheumatic diseases, at Cook County Hospital. Prior to this, she dedicated two years as an attending physician, actively contributing to the Internal Medicine Admissions Committee, showcasing her integral role in resident selection and mentoring.
