Location: Kaiser Santa Rosa

For my elective I did inpatient medicine admitting shifts at Kaiser Santa Rosa. I had the opportunity to admit many complex patients with diverse diagnoses as well as to respond to floor calls and codes. I worked mainly with Drs. Helen Hammer, Felicity McNichol and John Mihalik. I also had the chance to learn more about how Kaiser works and how their system coordinates care across disciplines to take better care of patients. It was a very high-yield experience that I would recommend to anyone seeking further inpatient experience.

further experiences at Kaiser

From: Olivia Gamboa

For my elective selective this year, I once again worked inpatient medicine admitting shifts at Kaiser. I worked with Drs. Chris Barker, Cherie Green and Vivek Kumra. I had the opportunity to admit and manage several medically complex patients and to discuss their cases with several specialists across disciplines. Kaiser offers the opportunity to see geriatric patients and endocrine patients that we do not often see on our inpatient service.
