Inpatient Curriculum

Our inpatient teams assume primary responsibility for both general pediatric and medical subspecialty inpatients. Some surgical subspecialty patients are followed by pediatric residents in co-management, allowing exposure to these fields. Our residents partake in family center rounding on each team as the standard of care. Our residents have the opportunity to care for all levels of acuity and complexity during their inpatient rotations.

Residents participate on five inpatient teams:

  • Purple and Blue: provides care for mostly general pediatric patients supervised by hospitalists
  • Silver: provides care primarily for pulmonology, cardiology and neurology
  • Green: provides care primarily for gastroenterology and nephrology
  • Red: primarily provides care for hematology and oncology

All medical subspecialities are cared for by our residents and not limited to the ones above. They are distributed based on team censuses by floors.

All of our teams include a senior resident and two PL-1 residents or intern equivalents (family medicine interns or sub-intern medical students). Medical students are present on all inpatient teams and residents are primary contacts for education and clinical skills. Our teams are distributed by floor to facilitate rounding.

Residents have a noon report conference series every Monday and Wednesday and a noon diagnostic reasoning session on Tuesdays to supplement their education while on the inpatient medical surgical services.
