Meet Our Chief Residents

MedStar Georgetown and Virginia Hospital Center Chief Residents

Elizabeth Hill, M.D.

Liz Hill, originally from Annapolis, Maryland and St. Louis, Missouri, now considers herself a native DC resident after 11 wonder years in the nation’s capital. She earned her Bachelors of Science at The George Washington University before moving “up the hill” to Georgetown for medical school.  During medical school she was inspired by the brilliant and compassionate Georgetown Internal Medicine attendings and aspired to become one. Lucky for her she matched at her home institution for her Internal Medicine Residency.  After 3 years of long hours, lots of learning, and forming life-long friendships with her co-residents (including meeting her fiancé) she is excited to lead the program as a chief resident. In her free time she enjoys going to ballet classes, running around the monuments, and staying up with the political buzz. She hopes to persue a career in Hematology/Oncology after her chief year… and possibly political office in the distant future.

Justin Musaffi, D.O.

Justin Musaffi comes originally from Long Island, NY and spent his 4 years of undergrad in the tundra that is Ithaca, NY at Cornell University. There he met his wife, Samantha, when they took the field in the Big Red Marching Band together. He headed south to sunny Florida where he received his D.O. degree at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale. Having spent the first two years of his training in Florida and the two years of his clerkship at the sister site of Southampton, NY, he matched into his top choice of residency at Georgetown University. The past 3 years have lead to an amazing amount of personal growth, education, and enjoying life with the best residents and faculty on the planet. When not at the hospital, he enjoys travelling the world and seeing the sights it has to offer. He and his wife also enjoy exploring the nightlife and amazing culinary scene that D.C. has to offer, crossing off as many of the Washingtonian's top 100 restaurants they can. After Chief year, Justin plans to pursue a career in outpatient Internal Medicine in the D.C. area. His goals for chief year are to continue the proud Hoya tradition of education to produce an amazing class of physicians and to help evolve our existing programs to improve the high quality of patient care that we offer at Georgetown.
