General:

SCHEDULING CHANGE –as of TODAY, the matrix for PGY 1 & 3 is as follows: 7a-3p2:30p-10:30p, and 10p-7a. This has been done to mirror the changes made to the attending schedule. 

Resident Respirators –need to be fit tested & cleaned daily. Go to employee health to pick up a pair of p100 filters for the masks. These are lighter than the cartridges and every resident gets 1 pair. Go get them while supplies last. The google drive folder now has detailed instructions on how to clean. There are instructions in the COVID folder on the drive for more specifics. There will be a video on how to clean sent out shortly on the cornerstone. Old Items:
Housing Survey – Faiz & Rahul have created a survey to help incoming residents with housing decisions. Please complete ASAP so we can get them the information now while they are deciding where they want to live. https://forms.gle/zmU8c4UsB2zmuEwaA

Living in RoanokeWe are trying to gather some general info on where residents live, eat out, exercise, and other things people do in Roanoke (pre- and post-Covid) in order to help the incoming interns.forms.gle

PEC Survey – Anne and the program evaluation committee need our feedback on ways to improve charting and other parts of the program. This is very important and helps us make positive changes. Please complete now so we can use it at our next meeting.https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G2XHXR6

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. 

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.
