Student Clerkship

Morning Rounds

You are expected to round every morning with your assigned team. The first, red highlighted column of your general schedule tells you which service you will be rounding on. Rounds generally begin between 5:45 and 6:00 a.m. with the intern. The time that you have to arrive will depend on the patient volume. After the first day you can ask the intern what time they would like you to show up. DO NOT arrive late. I expect you to see at least two patients during morning rounds and be prepared to present if the faculty ask.

Rounds Hospital Floor Charts Labels
CNM 3rd White
Antepartum 3rd (sometimes 4th) Yellow
Comp OB 3rd (sometimes 4th) Orange or Orange and White
Gynecology 5th (sometimes 6th) Look for "GYN" patients on the roster at the front desk. Get the room numbers. The patients charts will be outside the room.

ALL patients that you see MUST be checked out with a resident. If time and your clinical skills permit, you may and are encouraged to see more patients on morning rounds. EXCEPTION when you are assigned to round with the Certified Nurse Midwives on routine postpartum patients you will begin rounds at 7:00 a.m. on the third floor of Thomason (therefore, you will not be at morning report). Once rounds with the midwives are complete you will then go to your assigned daily activity (see Daily Schedule).
