Intern year is always the most challenging and exciting year. Twenty weeks of this year will be spent at Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center in an unopposed inpatient setting; 12 weeks is on day team service and 8 weeks ( in the increments of 2 weeks) on night float. This unique experience will make you more comfortable managing multiple illnesses. Being in an unopposed setting, you will have direct access to specialists and it is not uncommon for them to know you by name or to contact you regarding any special cases. Interns will also be running codes and rapid responses of unstable patients under the direct supervision of the senior resident. During the rest of the year interns will be developing clinical skills at different rotations like outpatient pediatrics, ER, surgery and others.
Second and Third Years:
Senior residents' schedule is focused on training in an outpatient setting. During this time residents master their skill as family physicians, they spend more time in the office where they participate in GYN and procedure clinics in our office. Although seniors are still spending some time in the hospital, there is more time for fun and electives. As a senior resident you will be supervising interns in the hospital and teaching medical students in all settings.
Due to our Night Float system ( 4 weeks per academic year), minimal call is required throughout the year, this is distributed evenly among all senior residents.
