4wksFour weeks prior to your rotation start date, please contact Caity Gerhardt (firstname.lastname@example.org | 206.987.1177)for important instructions and information. Include the following:
PLEASE NOTE: All medical students are required to complete the CPOE web-based training prior to the start of their elective at Children's Hospital. Patient contact is not allowed until CPOE training and all required paperwork in Children's GME office has been completed.
Upon arriving SCH, students must first check-in with SCH student credentialing, Sara Fear, for processing. Then proceed with Chief Surgical Resident, as assigned by Caity Gerhardt
The goals of the medical students and the faculty of the School of Medicine are one and the same: to get the best medical education possible while not ignoring overall health and happiness. Attention needs to be paid to both duty/work hours and personal time.
Work hours rules have been developed for residents, but similar rules have not been developed for medical students. There are obvious differences in terms of goals, reimbursement, and responsibilities between residents and students. Nonetheless, some guidelines for students apply.
