Weekly Announcements: 3/8/19

  • The chiefs and recently matched PGY-3's will be hosting a Fellowship Informational Session in the UH NRR at 8AM on Wednesday 3/13. The session is for all interested residents (though specifically tailored to current PGY-2's and PGY-3's who plan to apply) and will cover things like LOR, application advice, interview advice, etc.

  • Haidn Foster, UC medical student, has started a website called Pride in Practice that is looking to advance LGBT health care education. They are looking to get more involvement in the site. If you are interested in contributing in any way, please reach out. It's an incredibly important and needed initiative!

  • 3/15 is Match Day! That means we'll figure out who some of our new UC family members will be! We will be watching the live-stream of the UC Match Day celebration during NRR on Friday. Make sure you congratulate your AI's on their accomplishments!

  • The Internal Medicine Research Symposium is happening in MSB on 4/5/19! It's a fantastic way for residents to present their research projects, illustrate your hard work, as well as a nice addition to your CV :)

    • Research poster submission deadline is 3/15/19

  • Matt Kelleher & Dana Sall are the course directors for the Clinical Skills course for MS1&2's and wanted to invite residents to participate in a unique teaching opportunity. They are looking for volunteers in February and March for 1-hour sessions, where you observe students conducting an H+P with the SP (~35-40 minutes), then provide direct feedback and teach students “at the bedside.” You will be provided a facilitator guide for each case. The final step will be observing the students giving a brief oral presentation followed by your feedback. The entire encounter will take approximately 55-60 minutes of your time. Feel free to email Matt (kellehmw@ucmail.uc.edu) or Dana (sallda@ucmail.uc.edu) directly with questions. Otherwise, if interested, please sign up for slots

  • Feedback and improvement sessions for Geographic Wards will be every Tuesday and Friday in the UH NRR at 2PM. Come by with any thoughts. Remember to use the UCMC Geographic Wards page for updated information
