General Pediatrics Wards:
Pediatric Subspecialty Wards:
Residents on the inpatient subspecialty service care for patients with hematologic, oncologic, and renal disorders. Work and teaching rounds occur daily with the hematology/oncology and nephrology attendings, senior resident, interns, and medical students on the team. Family-centered rounds occur on the inpatient subspecialty service as on the general pediatrics wards. Interns rotating on the inpatient subspecialty service are responsible for addressing the issues of the heme/onc and renal patients on a daily basis. Seniors are the supervisors on the service and it is their responsibility to organize the educational activities for the team.
Residents provide coverage for NICU, PICU, and Wards overnight. The NICU and Wards teams are made up of one senior resident and one intern, and the PICU is covered by seniors only overnight. The overnight teams conduct “Tuck-In” rounds for each of their patients–speaking with families and consulting with their nursing staff or attending as necessary for patient care. Our residents use a national nighttime curriculum to help facilitate the coverage of core general pediatric topics while on nights.
