Some Highlights from Selected Months

ALTNight Team

During the senior night team block residents are able to independently manage patients, learning important skills of triage and admission of patients at night.  This resident also provides leadership for first year resident on the team and the PICU during a single month of nighttime ward coverage.  The night team resident manages admissions after 9 PM until 7 AM Sunday-Thursday and supervises the first year resident caring for patients in the hospital at night.

 

Nursery

This rotation focuses on normal newborn care.  Residents see patients in the normal newborn nursery and in the Continuing Care Nursery, which functions at an intermediate level between the NICU and routine care. As the senior resident, you will coordinate the clinical and educational activities of the team, which includes medical students.

Urgent Care

ALTUrgent care provides a one block longitudinal experience in the outpatient urgent care setting. Residents also learn about triage in a busy inner city practice. Time is also protected for your research project and continuity clinic.

Ambulatory Chief

This block provides senior residents with the experience of teaching and evaluating medical students and first year residents in the ambulatory setting while getting the opportunity to refine their own ambulatory skills. The month also exposes the senior resident to the concepts of quality improvement and proper billing and coding procedures.
