BACKGROUND: Israel is a country with a sunny climate; however, vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are common findings in certain populations whose exposure to sunlight is limited. Medical residency is known for long indoor working hours, thus theoretically limiting the opportunities for sun exposure. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the vitamin D status among residents in a single medical center in Tel Aviv is below the normal range. METHODS: Forty-six residents (28 females, 18 males, average age 33...

We surveyed internal medicine residents regarding how they approach febrile patients in cross-cover settings. Residents frequently use the term "full fever work-up," and rely on this for sign-out. Despite this, residents felt fever work-ups were not evidenced-based, and definitions of when and how to respond to a fever varied.

The purpose of the fourth year of medical school remains controversial. Competing demands during this transitional phase cause confusion for students and educators. In 2014, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) released 13 Core Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency (CEPAERs). A committee comprising members of the Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine and the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine applied these principles to preparing students for internal medicine residencies...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Work hour restriction has strained the balance between resident service and education. Night Float (NF) rotations are a popular answer to managing this balance but weakens continuity, an essential tenant of family medicine. An innovative short call system for Marshall University's Family Medicine Hospital Service (FMHS), the twINTERN call model, was created in response. We studied the impact of this approach on resident fatigue. METHODS: Anonymous surveys assessed fatigue of the Marshall University's 2013-2014 Family Medicine intern resident class while on NF rotations (ICU, Pediatrics and Surgery) and the twINTERN call...
