Elective Rotation: Inpatient, Writing and Spanish
Contact: Sevy Gurule
Location: Ukiah, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz
Inpatient- I worked on the inpatient team at Ukiah. I recommend contacting them many months in advance to ensure access to computer system and privileges. It was an excellent experience, especially if you are interested in inpatient medicine. Each day I arrived at 7am to round. Once rounding was completed I hung out with the admitting doctor and did all the admissions (2-4 daily). I was usually out by 4-5. Rounding is also in the ICU. They are eager to have us!
I attended the Kaiser medical Spanish intensive in Santa Cruz. Very well organized, awesome location/hotel, completely funded by Kaiser. Would recommend it to intermediate to advanced Spanish speakers. Some very quick conjugation/grammar review. More time spent on medical vocabulary and Latino patient health.
I worked closely with Dr. Sloan to write op-eds. I spend several half days working on various articles.
