Medical Students/Dental residents:
Your role is to learn, learn, learn. We have taken away much of the rote paperwork from you. We want you to see as much as you can including patients, procedures, everything!
The residents will be getting the history and physicals and hopefully showing you pertinent exam findings. You have been taught a very complete, thorough history and physical. Watch how the residents, especially the senior ones, do a focused, problem-based history and physical - a critical adaptation of the longer one for a fast paced environment like the ED! If you see a critical patient roll in, don't be afraid to run in and help and watch.
Use your downtime to read about what you've seen either on that shift or in a previous shift. We will have you do a couple of write-ups on patients during the shift and share them with the attending for review. See form at end of this document.
