General Project Information
Type of Project: 
Clinical
Date of Experience: 
2012-05-07 - 2012-06-30
Project Description: 

Daily tasks were very similar to working in the clinic in internal med or consultations.  It was a mix.  Most patients you saw alone first, did cc, hip, hx, pmh, fmh, and physical on your own.  You would then present the case along with a plan to the staff.  Staff would double check your PE as they generally knew the rest of the info beforehand and either institute your plan or a revised plan and discuss why the changes were made.  In the event that there are minor procedures they follow the see one, do one, teach one model.
