the Intern’s survIval GuIde
University of Nevada School of Medicine
Department of Pediatrics
Class of 2012
Compliments of those who came before you….
Diligence and conscientious behavior have more to do with success in internship than intelligence.
YOUR COLLEAGUES ARE YOUR FRIENDS. You have finally arrived at your destination. Congratulations! You
have worked hard and earned it. Now it is time to get rid of your old habits. These people are your friends and future
community of doctors. Welcome to the family!
BE A TEAM PLAYER! The patients are divided amongst the interns, but the entire team is responsible for the care
of the patients. Even though you won‟t formally present the other intern‟s patients on rounds, it is a good idea to know
them. You will eventually have to as a senior.
A few tiny ingredients for team work are:
1. Everybody has a name
2. Follow the golden rule
3. Be specific with both praise and criticism
HELP YOUR FELLOW INTERN OUT. If you are done with your work, you might write a script for a patient
being discharged or write discharge orders. Your colleague will appreciate it and things will run much smoother in the
end. At continuity clinic, you will see your own patients but there will be times where the clinic schedule is packed and
your fellow residents need your help to see some patients. The goal is to finish the afternoon together – it‟s a team
ASK FOR HELP. The sign of a good doctor is one who recognizes his/her own limitations. No attending or senior
will frown when asked for advice or help regardless of how basic or difficult you think the question may be. So go ahead
and wake your senior up if you have the least bit of doubt.
KEEP YOUR SENIOR INFORMED! If you get called for something significant, let your senior know (even if you
feel you have dealt with the situation).
THE NIGHT FLOAT! So this is how it works: The float/2nd year starts at 7pm on Sun and 430pm on Mon – Wed.
The float then off from Thurs pm until Sun night and does not have continuity clinic for the month. The intern on call
stays overnight. On the night before continuity clinic, the intern may take short call until 10pm or have their clinic
cancelled the following day. Fri and Sat calls are 24 hrs (8am – 8pm).
POST CALL DAYS! The ward interns are allowed another 6 hrs for continuity of care so they have until noon
conference to finish their work. Post-call residents can leave before noon conference except on Mondays for class
meeting and housestaff meeting. The cross cover interns cannot return to their rotations (it‟s not continuity of care) so
they are free after sign out expect for the newborn nursery resident who has to see their existing/previously seen
patients and sign out to their attending prior to leaving.
SIGN OUT! BE ONTIME FOR SIGN-OUT! Weekdays: 6am and 430pm. Weekends: 8am and on Sun 7pm. This
means you are responsible for all admissions until 6am on weekdays and 8am on weekends. If you had a rough night,
the on coming team may choose to do the admission for you, but ultimately it is your responsibility.
o UMC: Housekeeping comes every morning, but you may have to call them for the NICU call rooms.
o Sunrise: Again, housekeeping should come every morning, but sometimes you may need to call them.
MEALS: Eat when you can.
o UMC: Cafeteria (closes at 7pm, reopens 12am-3am)
o Sunrise: Doctors lounge (all day but meals served at bkfst and lunch weekdays only) Open all day except
o UMC: Library (5th floor of 2040) or Call room
o Sunrise: Library
DRESS CODE: Wear scrubs in the NICU, ED, Surgery and when on call. It is preferred that you wear
professional clothing during your continuity clinic. The official dress code is available in Carole‟s office.
o UMC: Employee parking/A lot usually has spots available until 8am. There is also the I lot for residents to
park. If both the employee parking and I lot are full, residents may be allowed into the trauma garage by an
officer. For noon lectures, you can park at the meters outside the 2040 building or the 2-hour physician
parking. Beware: residents have occasionally received tickets by parking at sites across the street from the
2040 building such as CVS or Delta Point.
o Sunrise: Your badge will give you access into the doctors parking lot. Parking spots are usually available.
o BE ON TIME! Absolutely MANDATORY!
o Important for preparation for your in-service exams and your pediatric boards.
o No lunch provided at noon lectures.
o Grand Rounds on Friday mornings. First Friday at UMC and the rest at Sunrise.
o If in doubt about the schedule, call the chief‟s office 671-6444 or the chief resident.
NURSING: Please be respectful and courteous! During your first few months, many of them can be helpful with
their fund of experience. For example, you can always ask “What has been done in the past?” to get an idea of how
to handle a situation. Remember: First impressions last. Make an effort to introduce yourself. If a nurse calls with a
concern, get up and go check the patient. This will be really helpful in your learning process. Good nurses have
good instincts. Always add an addendum when you do something at night.
ORDERS: Be clear and write legibly. If in doubt about dosing of medications ask your senior or call the pharmacy
(and include dosing as mg/kg). Don’t forget to date, time and sign your orders. If you give telephone orders, be
sure to go to the chart and sign them. This will reduce everyone‟s time at medical records.
PROCEDURES: We keep track of all procedures on www.acgme.org/residentdatacollection/. You will be
receiving a login/password and instructions on how to logon. You will need the patient‟s age/gender , and date the
procedure was performed. Best way to keep up is to log them in at the end of each week– do not procrastinate!
Important for graduation and credentialing.
CALCULATOR: This is an essential tool on the wards and in the ICUs. You will need it to calculate medication
doses, In‟s & Out‟s, calories, etc.
REFERENCES: When on the wards your Harriet Lane is most valuable so carry it with you at all times. You can
also download several programs on to your PDA that you may find useful (i.e. Harriet Lane, 5 Minute Peds Consult,
LexiComp, MobileMDX, etc.). Other options are UMC Library, several books in UMC call room, Sunrise Library,
Cabinets on floors of Sunrise Wards. There are numerous reference materials at Lied Clinic and Kid‟s Health Care
clinic. On-Line: MD Consult, First Consult, UptoDate Peds (but $).
HANDHELDS: LexiComp and MobileMDX are two pharmacopeias you can download for free. There are many
sites on the web with free downloads i.e. www.fppda.com/free.html, www.pedspalm.com or
www.pediatricsonhand.com. If you have questions about palm programs, ask one of the techies (Huy, Naseem).

THIS IS A PERMANENT MEDICAL RECORD! Speak clearly, spell terms when necessary. Use appropriate
professional language (no slang).
REMEMBER, EVERYONE READS YOUR DICTATION!
What would you want to know about this patient if they were to return for re-admission/follow-up. All helpful
information will be pertinent (Meds, procedures, questions asked by parents and your responses…)
TIMING: Dictate all admissions and discharges immediately. Do not wait until the chart is in medical records
because you will remember the patient least at this time.
FAXING COPIES/CALLING PMD: At the end of your dictations you can request that a copy of the discharge
summary be faxed to the PMD, consultants or any relevant persons. Whenever possible, include the fax number
with your request. Additionally out of courtesy, communicate with the PMD and let him/her know the patient‟s
hospital course for better continuity of care. You can usually find their numbers in the rolodex or on the ward
JOB NUMBER: Write down your dictation number on the H&P OR discharge orders. This will save from
repeating your work if dictations are lost.
MEDICAL RECORDS: Please keep up and make an effort in signing your charts at least once a month at both
hospitals. Call ahead for medical records to locate your charts. The easiest time to sign them is when you are on
call. Your hospital privileges can be suspended if charts are not kept up.
UMC Cquence: Allows you to do E-Signs and access archived H&Ps, DC summaries, consults and ER
PEARLS FOR ROTATIONS:
Assignment of Patients: The patients are divided between the two interns, but the entire team is responsible
for the care of the patients.
Efficiency & Organization: Your goal should be to finish your notes by rounds in order to make time for
teaching rounds. Your roles are being chief information gatherers and getting things done; both in an
efficient manner. You will learn these skills especially during your winter months!
Sign-Outs: Should take 30 to 45 minutes. Signing out existing patients should simply summarize what
happened during the day or over night. Presenting new patients should be kept brief as well.
ROUNDS & MORNING REPORT
Presenting patients: Present in a concise, logical manner. With new patients, be prepared to present all
details. With established patients, start with a one liner (name, age and diagnosis), developments during the
night, vital signs and pertinent physical findings along with your assessment and plan by systems for patients
with multiple issues. If you don‟t know the plan, ask your seniors. You are not expected to know
everything, that‟s why you‟re in residency! Use your progress notes as a guide (more impressive, if you can
present without reading). Be attentive and conscientious to your attending‟s presentation preference.
Morning report: Morning report is at 8am on Thursdays at UMC and on Wednesdaysat Sunrise. At UMC,
it is the General Resident‟s Lounge and at Sunrise, it is in the Lake Mead Conference room. The intern or
occasionally the medical student, post-call will be presenting a case from overnight. Be prepared with your
H&P, all labs & radiology.
CALLS & ADMISSIONS
Call: Keep your senior informed about all admissions and situations on the floor. Being a good doctor
means communicating with your peers and knowing when to ask for help.
Admissions: The decision to admit is made by the ER attending so ask them the reason for admission (the
patient usually was a lot worse before you saw them). At UMC, admissions will go to the ward attending.
Occasionally at UMC we may follow an interesting patient with a subspecialist. At Sunrise we only follow
patients with the hospitalists.
Insurance: Usually HPN patients not seen at Sunrise exceptions include cardiac patients. If you are not sure
if a patient belongs on your service, ask your senior or attending. Always check the insurance before
admitting a patient at Sunrise.
DISCHARGES & OFF-SERVICE NOTES
Dictate every patient you send home. When cross-covering, it is your responsibility to dictate all discharges.
If it is a complicated case, i.e. the child has had a prolonged hospital course; the resident who is the primary
caregiver should dictate the discharge summary. At Sunrise, no DC summary is needed if the patient stayed
<48hrs but you must still fill out the „short sheet‟.
Off-Service notes: At the end of the month, interns should write off-service notes for all patients admitted
> 48hrs to aid with transitioning to the new team. Best organized by systems, summaries should include the
patient‟s hospital course and plan.
Transfer Summary: When transferring a patient from ward to PICU, it is courtesy to write a transfer note
summarizing with a brief HPI, the hospital course thus far, current medical problems and the reason for
transfer. Additionally transfer orders MUST be written.
This is your time to perfect well newborn exams. Be present during hearing screens, blood tests and Newborn
screens. You might need to perform these tests yourself.
Deliveries: You will be called to Low-Risk deliveries. This is a good opportunity to implement your NRP skills,
Timing: You will be rounding on the well babies as well as patients in Level 2 nursery. We recommend arriving
between 6:30-7am so you can finish your rounds by 9:00-9:30 and then round with your attending.
Before you start: At UMC, submit call requests with the Chief and review the schedule with Dr. Dudhbhai. At
Sunrise, there are 7 calls – 5 weekdays and 2 weekends (weekend calls are short at Sunrise!). When you make
your call schedule for Sunrise, submit a copy to the Chiefs.
First Day: Write your name and pager number on the dry erase board inside the UMC NICU to be available for
deliveries. You or the PL-3 will carry a transition nursery and a resident pager. At Sunrise, inform the unit clerk.
At Sunrise, let the NNP of the day that know you‟re there so that they can find you for deliveries and
Rounds: At UMC, be sure to arrive early and finish your notes before rounds that occur 9am-12pm. At
Sunrise, show up at 8:30am daily. Rounds begin at 8:30 sharp so be on time! Radiology rounds are on Tuesdays
at 8am in the Radiology Reading Room. More pertaining to Sunrise, they will be impressed if you present the
neonates you admitted and the ones you have been following. This is not required and nobody will ask you to
do it so take the initiative. Once you do they will know you are interested.
Patient Assignments: You will be assigned patients by the attendings. At UMC, patients will be split between
you, the PL-3 and the NNP. At Sunrise they‟ll start you off with the feeders and growers and advance you to
more difficult patients once you are capable.
Progress Notes: At both hospitals, everything is computerized. Your attendings should familiarize you with the
Deliveries: Attend as many deliveries as possible. The more you attend the more comfortable you will feel.
Learn to assign APGARs and review your Neonatal Resuscitation. You will attend deliveries with a Nurse and
RT. They are a valuable resource for questions.
Procedures: Opportunities to do procedures (i.e. UVC, UAC, intubations, LPs, etc.) are always available, make
an effort to be proactive. Nurses will teach you to draw blood or start an IV. Don‟t forget to practice the Ballard
scores for assigning a gestational age based on physical exam
Learning: The attendings all love to teach and are knowledgeable but you must ask questions or they will not
know you are interested.
At UMC, stick with Evelyn the Nurse Practitioner. Let her be your guide.
Once again there is no handholding so show interest.
You will split time between rounding on floor patients and doing/watching procedures.
Timing: Show up to the OR on time, usually 7am, so that you can start an IV and occasionally intubate. If you
aren‟t there they won‟t wait for you. The more you are around the more you will see and do. Don‟t expect to
intubate on the first day. Be patient, but show interest. The booklet they give you to read is especially helpful.
Clinic: This is your opportunity to see which cases you should and should not refer to surgery. Additionally, it is
a good time to ask questions because the surgeons are not as busy. Arrive on time, notify them of noon lectures,
your call schedule and read on your down time.
Before you start: Dr. Nelson will get in touch with you to discuss the schedule.
Procedures: This is when you will get to do most of your procedures. Make sure you carry your procedure log
and then log them in when you can.
CLINIC (Lied Month/Continuity Clinic)
Focus: This is when you will get experience with well baby & child checks. Practice your Developmental
Milestones & Tanner staging on all your well child checks. Additionally, you will see hospital and ER follow-
Translators: Knowing Spanish helps. If you do not know Spanish there is an in-house translator available. If
the translator is not available or you need help with another language you can dial 789 from any of the portable
phones to reach an AT&T interpreter.
Timing: During your Lied month you should arrive at 8:45am. For continuity clinic you should arrive no later
than 1:15pm. Don‟t be late.
Procedures: This is where you will get hands on experience with circumcisions. At the beginning of the rotation
be sure to express an interest to Dr. Denton. At KHC, do your own rapid streps and urine dipsticks so that you
get the practice. It is also nice to know how to administer vaccinations.
Focus: This is the time to perfect your developmental milestones, neurological exams and understanding of
ADHD & Autism to say the least.
Attend Nevada Early Intervention Services/NEIS with Dr. Clemons. Be Punctual and there are also
opportunities to attend special clinics there (i.e. Genetics with Dr. Morris, Metabolic with Dr. Powell).
This is the month you will do Advocacy Seminar so choose your topic and meet with your mentor early on.
Enjoy your only call free month!
