Jr Attending Team Leader Rotation

The resident will spend 8 weeks as a Jr Attending on one of the Clinical Teaching Units (CTU) (at JGH, MUHC or St. Mary’s) and/or on one of the ED GIMCS services (at JGH or RVH) during the two-year training period. The rotation can be done as a combination of 2-week blocks (i.e. 4 times 2 weeks or 2 times 4 weeks, or combinations thereof).

The faculty attending must be a member of the Division of Internal Medicine (exceptions must be reviewed and authorized by the Program Director).

The second 4 weeks must occur in a different site than the first rotation so as to ensure a broader experience in terms of CTU settings and academic staff. The resident will receive the CTU Attending schedule of the four hospitals as soon as they are available in the spring and will indicate their top four choices for co-attending site and period to the coordinator of the General Internal Medicine Program (Audrey Weizmann, 514-340-8222, ext. 23942, aweizman [at] jgh.mcgill.ca). Every effort will be made to honor the resident’s preferred sites and periods for Jr attending. Once the schedules are finalized, the resident will be notified of where they will be Jr attending and during which periods, as will the respective CTU attendings.

It is the resident’s responsibility to contact the attending with whom he or she will be working with at least 2-3 months prior to the start of the rotation in order to review their role on the CTU (please refer to goals and objectives for Jr Attending Team Leader rotation). The resident should also be familiar with the Department of Medicine Guidelines for Attending Physicians at their respective hospitals. Please see Appendix “B” describing the attending physician and trainee expectations for the Jr Attending Team Leader rotation.

It is the resident's responsibility to advise the attending 1 week before the start of the rotation of which home call days they will take, including weekends/stat days at the 3 sites (JGH, MGH, RVH).  It is also the resident's responsibility to notify Locating/Call Centre on the weekend/stat days in question to say that they are first call for that day.

The resident is expected to continue with his/her weekly half-day ambulatory clinic (JGH and MUHC), and attend all academic activities including the Clinical Scholars Program and the academic/division rounds presented at the sites of their rotation.

Critical Care (ICU/CCU)

The resident is expected to complete two months of critical care medicine rotations during their two-year residency. These can either be in ICU or CCU. The ICU rotation has to be booked through the Program office. The resident will be asked to submit their request by mid-May indicating a choice of periods and sites. As for the CCU rotation, it is the resident’s responsibility to arrange this rotation and to notify the Program office once it has been booked. This should be done early in the academic year. The resident will generally function as Critical Care Fellow during that period, supervising or co-supervising (i.e. if there is a cardiac or critical care fellow also assigned that month) the team of residents.

CCU: At the JGH and RVH, the GIM residents may be expected to participate in junior call. At the MGH, GIM residents will be scheduled for call duties from home, with the understanding that the resident is expected to be in-house when patient care requires it and is expected to return to the hospital for unstable admissions and at any time when the more junior trainees need support. The resident who has spent most of the night in hospital will be granted leave on the following day, in accordance with the resident’s collective agreement. It is highly recommended that the resident not take any leaves while on the CCU rotation. The CMR at each site is responsible for the call schedule and all call requests go to them (CMR.JGH [at] gmail.com, CMR.MGH [at] gmail.com or CMR.RVH [at] gmail.com).

ICU: During the 1st month in the ICU, the GIM resident will be scheduled for night duty in-hospital. This applies to all three sites (JGH, MGH & RVH). The resident will be scheduled for night duty from home in subsequent rotation months. Please see Appendix “A”, the new ICU rotation scheduling policy document prepared by Dr. Hornstein. The site-specific critical care unit administrator and not the Program office will be responsible for the call schedule (JGH: Antoinetta Maglio, amaglio [at] jgh.mcgill.ca; MGH/RVH: Diana Sarcone, diana.sarcone [at] muhc.mcgill.ca).

Rotations can be done at the JGH, MGH, RVH, or Lakeshore General Hospital, or other sites upon approval of the Program Director, with no more than 4 weeks at any one site. The resident will be asked a choice of periods and every attempt will be made to honor these choices when the Program Office books the rotations.  Rotations can be done as combinations of 2-week blocks (i.e. 6 times 2 weeks, 3 times 4 weeks, or combinations thereof).

Home call is expected during rotations at JGH, MGH, RVH and Lakeshore General Hospital.  The scheduling varies at the three sites. The regulations for the maximum number of home calls, including the maximum number of weekends, is clearly outlined in the FMRQ collective agreement.  This maximum should not be surpassed.

At the JGH, the GIMCS rotation incorporates 2 week-end calls. The resident can request which week-end they would like off.  The week-end call will consist of call on both Saturday and Sunday.  It is expected that the resident come in the morning, round on the service, see new consults and review with staff on call.  The coordinator at the JGH will ask for call requests 2 weeks prior to the start of the rotation.  There is no week-day home call at the JGH. 

At the MGH, the resident is required to do 1 week of evening call (Monday to Friday).  The resident is also required to do 1 week-end call which begins on Friday evening until Sunday night.  The resident has the choice of which week and week-end they would like to do their call duties and can let the coordinator at the MGH know.

At the RVH, the GIMCS rotation incorporates 2 week-end calls. The resident can request which week-ends they will work.  The week-end call will consist of call on both Saturday and Sunday.  It is expected that the resident come in the morning, round on the service, see new consults and review with staff on call. The week-ends on call should be selected 1 month prior to the start of the rotation and emailed to the director of the service at emily.mcdonald [at] mcgill.ca. During a 4 week block the resident is encouraged to select 4 evenings where they will take home call. These do not need to be selected in advance of the rotation.

At the Lakeshore General Hospital, the resident is required to do two weeks internal medicine consultation service in the ER as well as two weeks of consultation service on the wards. The resident is required to do one weekend call; no evening call.

The resident is expected to notify the clinic site coordinator and/or supervisor once booked for the rotation of any expected absences (eg. vacation or study leave; attendance at a session at the simulation center). GIM residents are strongly encouraged not to book vacation or study leave during this rotation so as to maximize exposure to preoperative medicine.

CHIME

The resident is required to complete two mandatory rotations in CHIME. The resident will be asked at least five months before the start of the PGY4 year to select three choices for CHIME sites and the periods during which the resident would want to go. The CHIME Internal Medicine coordinating office (which is administered by Ms. Maureen Dowd) will take these into consideration when finalizing the CHIME schedule for all levels of internal medicine residents (PGY1-5). Any requests for schedule changes must first be communicated to the Program Director who will determine if they get forwarded to the CHIME Internal Medicine coordinating office for consideration. Once the CHIME site rotations have been scheduled, the resident will receive instructions from the CHIME Internal Medicine coordinating office in conjunction with the Program Office on how to arrange for lodging and travel, which will involve communicating with the CHIME sitespecific coordinators and administrators. Residents are expected to take call duties while on their CHIME rotations. It is the resident’s responsibility to contact the CHIME site administrators at least 3 weeks ahead of time to submit their requests and get the call schedules. Please see the descriptions below for the contacts for each site.

Global Health Initiative

McGill Global Health elective to Haiti for the core IM residents was expanded to include GIM residents.

Mike Quon was our first resident to participate and provided clinical teaching and care alongside staff Internists from McGill and Haiti for McGill core IM residents and Haitian Family Medicine residents. The experience was extremely rewarding, both personally and professionally, for all of the participants.

The elective is open to R5s and can be counted as one of the required Jr Attending periods. Anyone interested should contact Audrey Weizmann at aweizman [at] jgh.mcgill.ca

If you have any questions, feel free to email Drs Willemot (patrick.willemot [at] mcgill.ca) or Elizov (michelle.elizov [at] mcgill.ca).

Obstetrical Medicine at RVH-Glen

Two mandatory obstetric medicine rotations must be completed.  At least 1 Obstetrics Medicine rotation must be done outside McGill.  Please contact Audrey Weizmann (aweizman [at] jgh.mcgill.ca, 514-340-8222, ext. 23942) to arrange a rotation at the RVH (Glen site).

Clinical requirements for residents at the RVH include attendance at ALL scheduled clinics described below, as well as round on the inpatient pregnancy consultation service at RVH and participate in Obstetrical Medicine/Maternal-Fetal Medicine rounds.

Link to McGill Obstetric Medicine

Teaching in addition to Clinical Case Review

A reading list will be provided at the start of the rotation. Residents are expected to read all “important” obstetrical medicine topics and encouraged to read other articles.

There is a Medical Obstetrics Journal Club held every 3rd Friday of the academic period at the RVH.  The content and topic of choice is to be decided by the Internal Medicine Attending and fellow at the beginning of the rotation.

There will also be an Obstetric Medicine/Maternal-Fetal Medicine Academic session where GIM residents may be asked to present clinical cases.  These will occur the 4th Friday of each period.  Attendance and participation is mandatory.

Interactive online (CANCOM) cases are encouraged and may be reviewed/discussed with staff (Link). You can also find dates of upcoming GEMOQ meetings and past web conferences on this site.

In-Patient Consulting Service

You will be first call for obstetrical medicine consultations and follow ups weekdays Monday-Friday. You should liaise with the Obstetrics/Gynecology resident early in the rotation and regularly (each morning) to discuss cases.

Joint in-patient Obstetrics/MFM/Obs Med rounds will occur Friday mornings at 7:30am.

Please add new patients/update the Obs Med in-patient list on Oacis (can be found by searching lists that were created by Leora Birnbaum). Please do not delete any names from the list as it is also used for research purposes.  Your name must be added as a list user in order for you to add names to the Oacis list - this should be done before the start of your rotation. Please contact Dr Natalie Dayan if you find your list privileges inaccurate.

Administrative Notes

One or both Obstetric Medicine rotations can be done outside McGill at any hospital with an established Obstetrics Medicine Program.  The program administrator will book this rotation as she becomes advised of the number of periods for the training of McGill GIM Residents.

The sites outside Quebec and the CMQ require advance notice.  Audrey will need at least 4 months notice.

Attendance at GIM Clinic at the JGH and MUHC is not mandatory if it conflicts with a scheduled Med Obs clinic.  It is the resident’s responsibility to contact the GIM Clinic director and administrator about such conflicts.

Please remember that attendance at all academic activities (Obstetrical Medicine and GIM program) is mandatory during this rotation.

STACERs which can be completed in this rotation include the following:

-       Journal Club
