PGY-4  Rotations

PGY-4 Emergency Department Rotation

Senior residents are required to demonstrate excellence in teaching, proficiency in functioning autonomously and efficiency in improving patient flow. As a four-year residency, Brown offers an enhanced clinical and academic experience with opportunities for research, electives and individual career development. The PGY-4 experience in the ED prepares the soon-to-graduate resident to become an attending. Residents work in all parts of the adult ED as well as Hasbro and are responsible for a 16-bed unit of the ED supervising junior residents and medical students. PGY-4 residents are responsible for daily morning teaching rounds for all residents in the ED. In addition to their teaching role, residents also return to the critical care bays to keep up their critical care skills and work overnight at the Miriam Hospital managing a community ED in conjunction with an ED attending


PGY4 residents spend 2 weeks in the ED of Newport Hospital, a true community hospital. This rotation in beautiful Newport RI only occurs during warm months, and is an hour from Providence. Residents are provided a newly renovated and furnished house in Newport to stay in for free.
