How You Can (Do) TOP QUALITY RESIDENCES In 24 Hours Or Less For Free

Every medical student is really a bit apprehensive when he/she knows they’ll be assigned a new resident. 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 perhaps most importantly, will they i want to leave early to review for boards or benefit from the occasional night out? After a year . 5 of clinical rotations in a variety of hospitals throughout NYC, I’ve learned that every resident can fit in to one of three general categories.

The Amazing Resident
The first type of resident is my favorite. He/she is the one that still remembers what it’s like to have freedom and no responsibility as a 3rd and 4th year medical student. They understand that the medical student is strictly there to learn 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 sort out lunch to complete a progress note that should be done by the resident to begin with.

I have also noticed that this kind of resident is usually better and smarter than his/her colleagues. He/she will be able to get their work done without a medical student, therefore does not have to rely on him for help. Since this resident is usually smarter compared to the average bear, they often times impart unique clinical knowledge to the student. The funny thing relating to this resident is that I’m MUCH more willing to do the lowest of scutwork to greatly 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 is the resident that makes the student think that unless you work longer and harder than the resident, then you will ultimately be considered a horrible doctor and unworthy of the ‘MD’ degree. The darkest of these types of residents will taunt the medical student’s worst fears by threatening the idea of giving you a bad evaluation if you’re not breaking your back to make their life easier. Because of this if you eat lunch before finishing scutwork for him/her despite the fact that you’re about to distribute from hypoglycemia, you are unworthy. This kind of resident will berate you if anything goes wrong throughout their shift. This can 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 during the procedure. And for the information, it will continually be your fault, thus it really is easier not to argue and merely accept the blame and declare that you will never do it again.

This sort of resident can either be smart or not so bright, but one thing is definitely true, their notion 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 a patient they know nothing about, falls beneath the group 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 have to admit that this type of resident is not entirely bad. Ki Residences Singapore 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 back home while I was in the patient’s room. Although this is 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 place an NG tube. Thus, I have to thank that resident for being a bad teacher and leaving me to understand things on my own.

The Okay Resident
The last type of resident is markedly unique of the others, but sometimes has traits of both extremes. I really believe the primary problem that undermines this resident is they aren’t aware of the point that the student has needs such as going to the toilet and eating. They tend to forget that the student actually exists and is a lot 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 during the day and just don’t know how to utilize the student effectively. This leads to a medical student that is bored and zones out because he/she is not engaged and is left to stare at the paint drying on the wall.

I don’t desire to generalize this group of residents as being not smart, but they do not get it like a lot of their colleagues. The fact that they’re overwhelmed by work is because they don’t understand how to manage their time appropriately and when needed, require help from the medical student. I’ve met quite a few of the residents that are very smart, it’s just that they tend to be thorough making use of their patients, which doesn’t allow any time for them to consider how to have the student interact. From my experience, it appears that their strict attention to details stems from their paranoia of making a blunder and somehow killing an individual. This leads me to trust 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 rather than helping.
