This Week (4/6)

42nd edition. The GI block has now ended and the champion will be announced pending the Rosh Review quizzes. As we move into the EMS/Wilderness we had a near-perfect attendance last week which I’m sure has nothing to do with the fact that it was online. Keep up the strong work everyone. 

General:

Resident Respirators –all residents now should have a half-face respirator with a set of replacement cartridges. These should only be used for intubations or high exposure situations. You need to have them fit-tested before use so please contact Gary to get this done.  

Med Hub GME Module – has been assigned in place of the in-person sessions in the Med Ed building for obvious reasons. Please get this done by the end of the month. It does not take too long. If you are having trouble logging into the video website through Carilion, you need to use “carilion\username” and then your normal password. IM Resident Survey – Previously I sent out a pre-survey as a QI for one of the IM residents. For obvious reasons, he is unable to complete the in-person training component to complete his project. Please go over the attached PowerPoint presentation and fill out his post-survey. It doesn’t take long so please help out a fellow resident. Post survey link:

N95 Fit Testing – is now happening at 5 North near the security office. Get this done asap if you haven’t already. Old Items:

COVID-19 – continue to check the main residency drive > COVID-19 folder. I will continue to upload all the important documents as they are sent out. 

  • Attendings – if you want access to this folder send me your personal email address and I will send you a link to view. 
  • COVID-19 Links – is a document I made to keep track of the best resources to stay up to date. It is in the drive folder.
