Clinical Shifts

On clinical shifts, residents are responsible for direct patient care under the supervision of the academic faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine. Teaching rounds begin at 8 a.m. each morning and include clinical work rounds, with residents required to be present and turn over patients under their direct care and discuss the teaching points of interesting cases, followed by a didactic presentation. The faculty and/or program director will facilitate and lead these discussions. Brief transition-of-care rounds begin at 8 p.m. each evening.

Residents have progressive, graduated responsibilities for patient management, including resuscitations, and junior resident education, as well as teaching rounds facilitation throughout the three-year program.
