PGY-2 Emergency Department Rotation
Miriam Emergency Department
Pediatric Emergency Medicine Follow Up
Our second-year residents spend a valuable 3 weeks working with our experienced plastic surgery colleagues, gaining practical suturing skills and learning to manage complex wounds, facial and hand injuries. During this rotation, residents are responsible for ED consults and take primary call for injuries involving the hand and face. Residents also have the opportunity to participate in the operating room
Cardiac Care Unit
Residents will spend a dedicated month in the Rhode Island Hospital Cardiac Critical Care Unit. As one of the busiest cardiac services in the country, residents will gain an invaluable experience caring for critically ill cardiac patients. They will learn the basics of EKG interpretation, cardiac catheterization findings, management of acute decompensated heart failure, and post-MI care. There are ample opportunities for procedures including intravenous pacer placement, central line placement, intubation, and ventilator management.
Toxicology & Elective
Building on their foundation of knowledge from intern year, our PGY-2's spend 2 weeks learning the intricacies of emergency toxicology with our experienced and Fellowship trained Tox faculty. While on toxicology, residents will hold an educational consult pager and are notified about toxicological emergencies that present to Rhode Island Hospital, Miriam Hospital and Hasbro Children's Hospital. Elective time allows you tailor your learning during training. Our residents have ample elective time in PGY2, 3, and 4 to explore their passions or develop a niche. We believe in liberal arts emergency medicine, and you can choose your own adventure when it comes to your elective time. Through our Division of Global Health, we have ample funding to support International Electives, and residents have chosen to pursue electives in every medical and surgical specialty, as well as medical humanities, sex and gender, ultrasound, wilderness medicine, research, public health, and much more. You are only limited by your imagination!
