Typical Resident Schedule

proctor.jpgEach work day begins with Morning Report. Residents and faculty meet and review the patients admitted to the ward and PICU overnight. Following the evening's "headlines," second- and third-year residents present a brief teaching case on a topic of their choosing. Faculty and residents then discuss the topic in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

Frank RaucciThe unique opportunity to rotate on the Pediatric Surgery service is a great asset to our residency training.
Frank Raucci
3rd Year Resident

"On the Pediatric Surgery rotation, we are able to gain a great deal of understanding of the operative management options available to our patients by participating in pre-operative consultations, assisting and observing in operative cases, and providing post-operative care. Given that we work so closely with our pediatric surgeon colleagues throughout the year, the rotation also allows for the building of constructive relationships that ultimately benefit our patients.

This is certainly a challenging rotation and one of our most time-intensive during intern year; however, the skills and insight gained are well worth it."
