5. CHOP Visiting Professorship SeriesOnce a month a distinguished faculty member from our partner hospital, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), spends a day at The Children's Hospital at Saint Peter's University Hospital. The CHOP visiting professor will present a lecture at grand rounds, participate in inpatient teaching rounds and give a noon conference talk to our residents.
6. Attending RoundsAttending rounds are an integral part of each service and of the education of each resident on that service. Each service will have its own attending rounds in the morning at least three times per week under the direction of the faculty member in charge. This will include bedside and didactic rounds. Visiting professors may be integrated into the schedule when appropriate. Schedules are set by the individual faculty members and established at the beginning of each rotation.
7. Noon ConferenceHeld daily from noon to 1 p.m. Each session is run by a member of the faculty and offers instruction on various core topics in pediatrics. The topic schedule is established by the program director with particular attention to the core curriculum of the residency program. All residents are expected to attend.
8. Sign-Out RoundsResidents will gather at the end of the day when all routine work is completed, to sign out patients to the oncoming call team. All pertinent information concerning each patient will be discussed in order to ensure proper transfer of care to the overnight call team. Each service has its own organized sign-out rounds.
