Typical Resident Schedule
Each 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.
