From the Chiefs
Happy Monday and first day of August #DukeFam! Today’s IM residency news is brought to you by your one and only Chiefs! Don’t worry, you don’t need to wipe off your glasses or check your contacts because you read that right! WE. TAKING. OVER…well…just for today at least haha.
Big congrats to all the interns for finishing your first month of residency! This is a huge milestone and you should all be SUPER proud of yourselves! SARs, keep your phones on loud and email notifications on blast because more interviews will be rolling in this month (we’re so excited for you all!). To our beloved JARs, please take note of when you are scheduled to take your ITEs because they are coming up soon!
Now to the part we all enjoy the most – Kudos! Big time kudos to John Tanaka for an awesome SAR talk on chest pain and ACS (insert Lonnie’s dad joke here: JT your talk gave me “palpitations”) and to Sandra Loriaux, Sarah Moserowitz, Emory Buck and the Duke Wiki team for breaking down the Duke Wiki for us! Also, kudos to Eric Wilson for going above and beyond for his first DOC patient from Ben Kellog, to Nijat Aliyev from Katie Smith for getting a cross cover patient discharged while on call at the VA and from Auston Stiefer for being a master of efficiency and always teaching, to Michael Ibrahim from Jackie Kercheval for doing a deep dive into CPRS on a patient for the MICU squad, to Meghana Rao from Shannon Herndon for leading a conversation about heart failure to a patient in need, to Nicholas Perkons from Mary Guhwe on Neuro for demonstrating excellence in documentation, and one last ginormous kudos from Sara Barlow to Joe Goddu, Haley Bush, and Yemi Olubowale for all-around great work on 9100! Whew…that was a lot, but it just goes to show you how incredible you all are!
Pubmed from the Program
This week’s PubMed from the program goes to Bret Pinsker! Who would have known that his research is even more impressive than his jump shot! Strong work Bret!
