8:00 am: I begin my day by rounding on patients at Children's Hospital with the attending. Typically we have 2-5 consults per day. We touch-base with the attendings regarding any consults or issues that arise on existing patients.
12:00 pm: I attend noon conference where primary care and sub-specialists present various topics. Thursday is Professor's Rounds where senior residents present cases and grill the attendings! Board review and journal club sessions are wrapped monthly into the noon conference schedule.
1:00 pm: I round on new consults with the attending. This is also the time I have my continuity clinic which I go to 1-2 times per week. If time allows, I will read independently.
4:00 pm: This is the time I wrap-up my day. I complete my consults, notify teams of recommendations and follow-up on any additional patient care items. Then I GO HOME!
