Introduction and Goals
During the first few weeks of residency, it is cruicial for junior residents to have close supervision not only from their faculty, but also from senior-level residents who can explain in detail how to work within our institution and begin the process of becoming an independent physician. The goal of this rotation for senior residents is not only to provide this supervision and education, but for themselves to become proficient in the important aspects of supervisory practice.
Objectives and Evaluation Matrix
As with all of the neurology rotations, the specific objectives are reflected in the entrustable professional activities and individual milestones listed below. These form the basis for the end-of-rotation evaluation. (Please see the section End-of-Rotation Evaluations above for the list of milestone abbreviations).
|Upon completion of the curriculum, residents will . . .|
|1||Function as an attending physician would, staffing cases presented by the students and junior residents||PC1, PC2, PC3, PC5, PC6, PC8, PC12, MK1, MK2|
|2||Teach the junior residents how to perform lumbar punctures and interpret neuroimaging, EEG, and EMG studies||MK2|
|3||Teach the junior residents how to incorporate evidence-based medicine, cost-effectiveness, and patient safety considerations into their care plans||SP1, SP3, SP4|
|4||Model for the junior residents the qualities of professionalism, communication skill, and an ethical approach to patient care||PR1, PR2, IC1, IC2, IC3, IC4|
The ward senior keeps essentially the same schedule as the stroke and general neurology residents whom he/she is mentoring. Please see those rotation descriptions for further details.
As above, the ward senior will have work hours that substantially overlap that of the resident he or she is supervising.
