Our program offers us the great opportunity to actively manage patients from day one of residency. We are taking care of patients on the floor, in the ICU, in labor and delivery, and running rapid responses and codes all as first year residents. Being the only residents in the hospital allows us ample opportunities to do procedures like central lines, circumcisions, lumbar punctures, and chest tubes. The attending physicians that we work with make sure we have plenty of opportunities to practice our skills.
