Day in the Life of an Intern

day1 day2 day3 day4 day5 day6 day7
About 1 pm, after conference, we have work and teaching time. With our 3+1 schedule design, neither the intern nor the resident leaves for continuity clinic. This means that afternoons are free for patient care and informal learning. I have time to follow-up with consults, get procedures done, and talk with patients and their families. A typical afternoon also includes a quick chalk-talk by my resident or my sister-team resident. On non-call days, we typically sign out to the call team by 5 pm.
