Medical Student Orientation Checklist
Orientation: Generally, the first Monday of your rotation, Dr. Shah will meet with you in the Emergency Care Center that morning for an hour long orientation. You should be prepared to work a shift that day unless otherwise scheduled. It is important to have your paperwork turned in at least three to four weeks in advance to get your badge and pass-codes before your first day at Rady Children’s Emergency Care Center.
These forms must be filled out and turned in to obtain a computer access code. You will receive your private computer access code from Shaela Parrott only if you have turned in updated forms. This will allow you to access patient information.
You can obtain your ID badge in Building #17, only after submitting all GME forms. Also you will need a proximity card to access parking and Hospital doors. To get your proximity card, please contact Monica Meza at 858-966-8036. Badge Office Hours: 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
ECC Reports: There is a dictation template on the website; please refer to that as a guide as to what your written notes should include. If you have any questions regarding the completeness of your notes, please be sure to review with the attending physician.
Tools: Please arrive with all of your tools, including stethoscope, reflex hammer, insufflator and black ink pen.
ECC House Staff Manual: A manual has been created to provide you with the information needed to begin working in the ECC. It is required reading prior to the first day of your rotation.
