Certificate LoR from the chief resident!

I know I need US LoRs but as far as LoRs from my medical school, is one from the chief resident of my field of interest enough? or does it need to be from an attending?

An LoR from the chief resident would work, but an LoR from a professor or the head of department would have much higher impact.
