Intern Bootcamp
Intern Bootcamp 

Starting internship can be overwhelming. There are a lot of skills that one has to learn in a short period of time. During summer, chief residents run sessions where fresh interns learn and practice survival skills for the wards. These happen on Wednesday mornings until Labor Day. 
These sessions are video recorded and kept on a flash drive in Library, Call room and Chief's office so interns can borrow these to review any of the topics. 

Following topics were covered this year:

Writing good notes 
Giving good presentation
EKG interpretation basics
ABG interpretation basics
Fluids and electrolytes basics
Chest Xray interpretation basics
Insulin and Glucose goals in hospitalized patients
Discussing code status with patients
Interpreter services
Breakfast with CEO
