Day in the Life of an Intern

day1 day2 day3 day4 day5 day6
Our conference ends around 1:15 pm, and I spend the afternoon getting the rest of my work done. There is still plenty of time for teaching from my attendings, fellows, and upper level residents. With our 3+1 schedule design, neither the intern nor the resident leaves for continuity clinic. I have time to follow-up with consults, get procedures done, and talk with patients and their families. I even have time for some EKG teaching with one of my chiefs. On non-call days, we typically sign out to the call team between 4 and 5 pm.
