Kendall Presti, MDKendall Presti, MD, Chief Resident of Neurology’s Residency Program for the 2023-2024 school year is from the local Worcester area. She spent four years at Holy Cross before moving to Westchester NY, for medical school at New York Medical College. Kendall has been at UMass Chan for the past four years and will be participating in the Neurocritical Care fellowship program beginning this summer for additional training in the Neuro ICU. 

Kendall’s experience as a Chief Resident included supporting the residents while improving her leadership and teaching skills, supporting residents with personal and professional concerns, interfacing with superiors, and refining public speaking skills. The most rewarding part of being a Chief Resident was watching the residents grow throughout the year.  

Before starting medical school, Kendall spent two years in neuropsychiatric basic science at McLean Hospital. She enjoys acute care, procedures, and palliative aspects of medicine. Kendall’s interests in teaching medical students their preclinical years and giving lectures to other departments led her to run for chief by sharing, “My main goals have always been to be a strong clinician first and foremost, as well as an educator.” 

Kendall enjoys spending time outside and plans to ski out west and hike in Yosemite and around Amalfi this year.
