FORMAL LEARNING

Did you have lectures/didactic sessions at your rotation site? How often? How long? Do you feel like they were as well organized as the lectures at Jeff?
  • Yes - 1-2 lectures a day. Very informal: a very good chance for students to ask questions.
Did you give a presentation? Were you required to do so?
  • It depends which service you are on and which attending is on service. Normally, NICU does frequent presentations.

WORK SCHEDULE

What were your hours (roughly)?
  • Depends on the service, but roughly 6:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Did you get off on major holidays, or were you expected to be there (i.e. Labor Day, Thanksgiving & Friday after Thanksgiving)?
  • Got off for major holidays.
What was the call schedule? Were you able to pick your nights or trade with peers?
  • No call.
In the Hospital, did you feel a part of the ‘team’? Did residents/attendings appreciate you?
  • Definitely. Lots of interaction with the attendings.
How was the teaching by attendings?
  • Excellent! This is the best part about Neurology at Jeff. The attendings love to teach and engage the medical students.

HOW TO BE A ROCK STAR

  • Know your neuroanatomy!

CANDID COMMENTS FROM STUDENTS

Pros:
  • Great teaching by attendings. Lots of hands on procedural experience on NICU.
Cons:
  • The course coordinator gets behind in responding to e-mails.
  • Most students did not enjoy consult since they are not sent first to see the patients.
