4 Houses – Shirts are available in Christie’s office. 

MedHub – needs to be updated immediately with all of your resident activities. Each entry takes about 30 seconds and the program needs to keep track of what we are doing. 

Residency Peer Review – will start again next block so send me cases you think would be useful. Give MRNs to either myself, Barb, or Roberta.
