Guidelines and Expectations
This section will outline your role on the medical team, basic daily routine, specific expectations for Medicine 1 and Medicine 2 and for the clerkship in general. These are meant to be general guides and you should expect to get more team-specific expectations once you meet with your attending and resident.
Each student is assigned to a resident who will make patient assignments, read write-ups, and be available to the student for guidance and advice. You will probably learn more from the resident than any other single individual and should make it a point to look to him/her as your immediate advisor. In addition, you may call upon the interns, residents or fellows in medical specialties, chief resident and faculty members for advice. Don't hesitate to ask questions! Please consult with the chief resident or clerkship coordinator about any problems that cannot be resolved in conference with your resident.
