Residents are expected to interpret physical signs and laboratory data accurately on all inpatients and to recall necessary facts relative to the patient. They are expected to analyze and interpret appropriate data to establish the diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan. Residents are expected to perform all minor procedures (for example, lumbar puncture) and to conduct patient histories and physical examinations. Chart documentation of all activities is emphasized and the need for clarity is reinforced.
Residents are closely monitored by the faculty for all inpatient care. Faculty review patient records and follow the hospital course of all inpatients. Daily rounds are carried out in the morning and evening.
