    4th Term Hospital Visits

    Advertisements



    How many times do we go to the Grenada Hospital during 4th term? Is it a regular thing or just once or twice for clinical skills?

    Your acs group gets teamed up with a doctor and then you do an h+p on a pt. The whole thing lasts for ~30min.

    Aside from the hospital visit, you only work on fellow students and standardized pt's for midterms/finals in 4th term.

    In st vincent (terms 5/6), you rotate in the hospital (2 x week) where you take a h+p on an admitted pt and then present your findings to the doctor in charge.

    IMHO, the hospital rotations are much more worthwhile than the small group sessions.
