Job Summary

The resident physician is both a learner and a provider of medical care. The position of resident or fellow physician entails provision of patient care matching with the individual physician's level of advancement and competence. All resident care is supervised and the attending physician is ultimately responsible for care of the patient.  A resident physician's responsibilities include patient care activities within the scope of their clinical privileges commensurate with the level of training, attendance at clinical rounds and seminars, timely completion of medical records, and other responsibilities as assigned or as required of all members of the medical staff.


Under the supervision and watchful eye of attending faculty clinicians, the objective of medicine includes:

  1. Participation in safe, effective and compassionate patient care;
  2. Developing an understanding of ethical, socioeconomic and medical-legal issues that affect graduate medical education, and how to apply cost containment measures in the provision of patient care;
  3. Participation in the educational activities of the training program, and as appropriate, assumption of responsibility for teaching and supervising other residents and students, and participation in institutional orientation and education programs and other activities involving the clinical staff;
  4. Participation in institutional committees and councils to which the house staff physician is appointed or invited; and
  5. Performance of these duties in accordance with the established practices, procedures and policies of the institution, and those of its programs, clinical departments and other institutions to which the house staff physician is assigned; including, among others, state licensure requirements for physicians in training.
