My typical day starts with the seeing patients with my interns and going thru all the patients in detail. We make a plan. Soon afterwards we have a teaching round with our teaching attending which last 1 hour . Then we talk with the hospitalist about the patients and respective attendings. Hospitalist system is increasing so few of the patients are still managed by their own attendings. Then we have noon conference. After the noon conference we usually make the final plan, write our notes and signout our patients to on call by 3:30
Faculty is nice. However the Mount Sinai hospital is very busy, we carry a lots of patients. Calls are every fifth day, which give ample time to relax before the call. I think with the hospitalist system more and more things will get better
There is excellent relation ship between peers. The attending resident relation is generally good. 80 percent are foreign medical graduates. My life outside the work is ok. I get time to spend to enjoy
The program has the draw back of commute between the Mount Sinai hospital and NCVAMC. The program has some of the drawbacks such as busy schedule and heavy workload. The program director and faculty not very interested in the fellowship of the candidates. Most of the residents do the priomary care. some get into fellowship.
