This Week (5/18)

48th edition. There were many points to go around last week with the Kahoot session, Dear Doc, and attendance points. With 2 weeks left in the block House Kuehl has taken a strong lead. 



Passport –  all employees are now required to self-screen prior to each shift. Instructions are attached. If you have any further questions refer to Dr. Burton’s email last week. These instructions have also been uploaded to the Covid folder on goggle drive. 

Feedback – let us know your thoughts on last week’s conference attendance/quizzes. We are trying to come up with the best way to do this an open to feedback. 

ABEM Written Boards – PGY3s can now do the initial application for the written boards on ABEM’s website. It is $320 now and the price doubles if you wait until September. Go to the bottom and select “initial application”. 

p100 Cartridges – there are still 10 or so extra cartridge refills in the resident room which means that some of you didn’t get your refill box. They are in the second cabinet on the left and I purchased enough for every resident to get 1 box (= 2 replacement cartridges). Old Items:Scheduling Change –the matrix for PGY 1 & 3: 6a-2p1:30p-9:30p, and 9p-6a
