Residents at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center are assigned to spend time with attendings in the ambulatory care facilities as well as in the operating room. It is during this time that they are given increasing responsibilities, particularly for more complex open urologic procedures in the operating room. They also are responsible for evaluating all of the correctional facility patients with urologic problems at the outpatient facility and begin to provide teaching to the interns and PGY2 residents on the service. Residents also have a heavy responsibility for the evaluation and presentation of the inpatient consultations.
It is the goal of these eight months to provide a greater degree of independence for residents and to have them begin formulation of appropriate management plans for urologic problems. The four-month rotation at Nationwide Children's Hospital is designed to introduce the residents to the evaluation and management of pediatric urologic and congenital genitourinary problems.
The radiologic investigation of these patients, as well as their surgical management, is emphasized. Continuity of care is assured because the resident spends all of their time with the attendings in the office or in the operating room.
