Residents are divided into three Hospital Medicine teams on the medical floors. Each team is composed of one senior resident and two to three first-year residents.

  • Each team is supervised by a teaching faculty hospitalist who conducts bedside teaching rounds with each team to discuss academically challenging cases.
  • The first-year residents assume primary responsibility for patients admitted to the teaching service. They obtain a history and physical and collect lab/imaging data, and then discuss this with the senior resident to formulate a management plan. The patient's teaching attending physician oversees the plan and directs the team.
  • Cleveland Clinic Intensivist with a Critical Care fellow, second-year resident, and one first-year resident. The second team is Private Intensivists with a second-year resident. The Intensivists are present seven days a week to supervise the residents.
  • The second-year residents organize the team's daily teaching rounds conducted by critical care specialists.
  • The CCU team is composed of a second-year resident and Intensivists are present seven days a week to supervise the residents. Cardiologists provide didactic sessions to the resident.
