The Department has created a web-based workspace for faculty, residents and alumni. Access to the workspace is by invitation only. There are many educational components of the website including Program Director Case of the Week and the Daily Morning Report Evidence-based Follow-ups. Many of our current residents and alumni have contributed to the workspace.
With the opening of the Simulation Center, the Department has expanded the depth and number of opportunities residents have utilizing medical simulation. ACLS, complex patient scenarios, and procedural training are just a few examples.
The Department of Medicine has instituted a complete night-float system on all rotations. Residents on call will work until 9 p.m. when they will be relieved by a well-rested night-float team. Call is never more frequent than every fourth or fifth day. Residents are trained in appropriate signing out of patients that helps in the hand-off process.
