To provide a comprehensive experience in caring for and managing acutely ill patients in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

                       

 

Specific Objectives:

1.        Students will complete and document in Epic the history and physical exam of each patient assigned to them on the Inpatient Medicine Wards as well as all patient orders and daily progress notes.

2.        Students will perform an H&P on each new patient assigned to them and present the information to their attending.

3.        Students will read about the conditions pertaining to their patients and present to the attending physician the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment plans.

4.        Students will attend all scheduled department conferences with the Medicine interns as documented by a sign-in sheet.

5.        Students will be present and round with their team every week day and one weekend day each week.

The resources of the ward team resident, attending physician, and consulting physicians should be used routinely to supplement the students reading, as well as recourse to journal articles and internet resources as needed.
