5 Ways Of TOP QUALITY RESIDENCES That Can Drive You Bankrupt – Fast!

Every medical student is really a bit apprehensive when he/she knows they will be assigned a new resident. Ki Residences Sunset Way Exactly the same questions always appear…will the resident be nice? Will they understand my busy schedule? Will they make me execute a ton of scutwork? Will they make me write all of his/her progress notes? And maybe most importantly, will they let me leave early to study for boards or enjoy the occasional night out? Following a year and a half of clinical rotations in a variety of hospitals throughout NYC, I’ve learned that each resident can fit in to 1 of three general categories.

The Amazing Resident
The first kind of resident is the best. He/she is the one which still remembers what it’s prefer to have freedom and no responsibility as a 3rd and 4th year medical student. They understand that the medical student is strictly there to understand some cool things and see some interesting procedures, then escape the hospital to study. This resident is nearly always cognizant to the fact that the medical student will not want to work through lunch to finish a progress note that ought to be done by the resident to begin with.

I have also noticed that this type of resident is usually more efficient and smarter than his/her colleagues. He/she is able to get their work done with out a medical student, therefore does not have to depend on him for help. Since this resident is normally smarter compared to the average bear, they often times times impart unique clinical knowledge to the student. The funny thing about this resident is that I am MUCH more ready to do the lowest of scutwork to help him/her out because of the teaching and knowledge of the medical student’s role.

The Horrible Resident
On the other extreme of the spectrum may be the resident that makes the student think that if you don’t work longer and harder compared to the resident, then you will ultimately be a horrible doctor and unworthy of the ‘MD’ degree. The darkest of the types of residents will even taunt the medical student’s worst fears by threatening the idea of giving you a bad evaluation if you are not breaking your back again to make their life easier. This means that in the event that you eat lunch before finishing scutwork for him/her despite the fact that you’re about to pass out from hypoglycemia, you’re unworthy. This type of resident will berate you if anything goes wrong throughout their shift. This may include yelling at you for misplacing the central line in the carotid rather than the external jugular, despite the fact that you were only an observer through the procedure. And for your information, it will always be your fault, thus it really is easier not to argue and merely accept the blame and declare that you will never repeat.

This type of resident can either be smart or not bright, but one thing is definitely true, their idea of ‘teaching’ is very misconstrued. They believe making the medical student call another hospital to obtain medical records, or calling the primary care doctor regarding an individual that they know nothing about, falls under the category of teaching, Therefore, this fulfills their role as a ‘teacher,’ resolving them of having to waste their time explaining the reasoning for ordering potassium levels Q4H on the DKA patient.

On the other hand, I must admit that this kind of resident isn’t entirely bad. I once had a resident that often left the building before me leaving some of his work for me to perform. He would ask me to get an ABG on his patient with respiratory distress, and then go home while I was in the patient’s room. Although this was incredibly annoying, I did so become extraordinarily competent on many procedures. I can now do an ABG blindfolded and I don’t need any assistance other than a nurse to put an NG tube. Thus, I must thank that resident to be a bad teacher and leaving me to understand things on my own.

The Okay Resident
The last kind of resident is markedly different than the others, but sometimes has traits of both extremes. I really believe the principal problem that undermines this resident is that they aren’t aware of the truth that the student has needs such as for example going to the toilet and eating. They have a tendency to forget that the student actually exists and is more than only a fly following them around. This resident is not directly vicious (like the ‘horrible resident’), it’s they are usually too overwhelmed throughout the day and just don’t know how exactly to make use of the student effectively. This results in a medical student that is bored and zones out because he/she isn’t engaged and is left to stare at the paint drying on the wall.

I don’t desire to generalize this category of residents to be not smart, but they don’t get it like many of their colleagues. The fact that they are overwhelmed by work is because they don’t understand how to manage their time appropriately so when needed, ask for help from the medical student. I’ve met quite a few of the residents which are very smart, it’s just that they tend to be thorough with their patients, which doesn’t allow any moment for them to think about how to have the student interact. From my experience, it appears that their strict focus on details is due to their paranoia of making a blunder and somehow killing an individual. This leads me to believe they have to read Samuel Shem’s books and grasp the theory that less is normally better in the healthcare world and their meticulousness is hindering instead of helping.
