A Day in the Life of a Resident

Raven Price, M.D. (PGY-1)Raven Price, First Year Resident

As a psychiatry intern, you’ll rotate through 6 months of psychiatry rotations and 6 months outside psychiatry to supplement and strengthen your general Raven Price, M.D. (PGY-1)medicine.

My first month as an intern was spent on Norton Hospital’s Psychiatry Consult Service. The Norton psychiatry consult team consists of an attending, a fourth year resident, three medical students and an intern. We would except consults from 8am till 5pm during the week. The consult service is covered by an upper level resident after 5pm during the week and on the weekends. Along with accepting new consults, we round on previous consults that we were taking care of. I would arrive at about 8am each morning and round on my patients. The residents and the medical students meet each day for lunch and review the patients for the day. Afterwards, we place orders and write notes. When the attending arrives, we round on all of the patients, presenting them to the attending. After rounding on all of the patients, we discuss the patients and make appropriate changes to the patient orders and notes.
