Who Is Dr. Michelle Lin In Grey's Anatomy Season 18?

Lin was first featured in Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 1 as the newly-hired head of plastic surgery.

Since Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) was dealing with doctors quitting their job due to COVID-19, she had to quickly find a replacement for some key positions. However, Bailey was on the fence about hiring Dr. Lin because she seemed arrogant.

But the hospital didn’t have much choice that’s why Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr.) decided to hire Dr. Lin. Shortly after, the new head of plastic surgery expressed her desire to quit the job because she witnessed first-hand how incompetent some of the interns were.

Webber urged Dr. Lin to not quit because it would be difficult for them to find another replacement at such short notice. Instead, he promised the doctor that he will train the interns so that they won’t disappoint her again.
