Residents are divided into two Hospital Medicine teams on the medical floors. Each team is composed of one senior resident and two to three first year residents, and often joined by a first year rotating resident from other programs.

  • Each team is supervised by teaching faculty or hospitalist based on the team subtype, who conducts bedside teaching rounds with each team to discuss academically challenging cases.
  • The first year residents assume primary responsibility for patients admitted on 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.
  • The ICU team is composed of two teams, one team is Cleveland Clinic Intensivist with a second year resident and one first year resident. The second team is Private Physicians with a second year resident.
  • The second year residents organizes the team's daily teaching rounds conducted by critical care specialists.
