Elective Rotation: Inpatient Medicine at Kaiser
Contact: Olivia Gamboa
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.
