Teaching Medical Student

The Residency Program helps to provide an environment conducive to learning surgical principles during the clerkship. The students will be assigned to Day Call, Night Call, OR, Ambulatory Surgery, Clinic and Wound Care. The chief resident is expected to lead morning and afternoon rounds. Medical students should be encouraged to closely follow several patients on the service and provide input into their care. During rounds the medical students are invited to briefly present the patients and their progress as well as assist in dressing changes. The morning rounds start at 6 AM and are focused and work related. In the afternoon, every attempt should be made to make rounds between 5-6 PM. Once or twice a week, afternoon rounds should be focused on medical student education. This may include resident or medical student presentations reviewing the latest literature on a specific topic as it relates to the in-patient service.
