The chief resident year, PGY5, incorporates four months on the Buckeye Service at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and four months on the Scarlet Service and four months on the Gray Service at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Each chief resident has a four-month responsibility as the administrative chief resident. During this rotation, residents have heavy teaching responsibilities, including teaching junior-level residents open surgical skills.
Other responsibilities include overseeing the call schedule and the conference schedule, and planning the urologic pathology conference and weekly resident conferences.
In consultation with the attendings, chief residents will elect appropriate evaluation and management and surgical procedures for the correctional patients. They also will scrub in on cases of high complexity in the operating room.
