PGY I:

The intern is expected to enter all orders in CPOE, document patients' care in the chart with H&P and SOAP notes, perform daily work rounds and attend all conferences.

PGYII:

Junior residents are expected to ensure quality of care for each patient, supervise interns, take a leadership role during work rounds, and participate in all conferences. They also play a major role in the education of medical students and interns and give presentations at Clinicopathological Conference, Journal Club and Morbidity & Mortality Conference.

PGY III:

Main goal is to perfect clinical and teaching skills with emphasis on leadership in the residency program.  Senior residents are expected to ensure quality of care for each patient, to lead work rounds, participate in all conferences, and supervise the education of medical students. The profile of the third year training is tailored to meet the specific career goals of each resident.
