Philip Chambers was a medical student at Sacred Heart Hospital.
When Elliot Reid learned that she was getting a medical student to teach she hoped for a jerk so that she could make someone else suffer how she had. When Philip was assigned to her she was excited that he was a jerk, after he called her a nurse and insulted her for being a woman. Elliot made Philip shave the groin of a patient. When she learned that Philip's father, Whitaker Chambers, was the CEO of the company that owned Sacred Heart, she had to put up with Philip's attitude. After a stern talking to by Dr. Kelso, Elliot "manned up" and regained control of Philip, after threatening to talk to his father. ("My Student")
