Application: About the Charité
I've spent four months on the station 10 B my first and am overall very happy. It was especially marked by a very nice team and other great PJlern, as well as a varied work. Every morning from 7.00 am to 7.50 begins with the examination of patients. The task of the lesion it is to record the tasks (consultation, Sonos, blood, wound care, chemotherapy applications, etc.) for the day that you edited also with in the course of the day. Can be applied to your own patients depending on their own initiative and does to visit independently. This is a good chance, as there is always a doctor set aside for questions and problems. After the morning meeting that start at 8 o'clock to OPs, you may like to come if the station work is covered. As another option, you can use the polyclinic to go, take patients and investigate, and be present at many Endo-urological procedures. Depending on how many other lesion or abler there are, you can then work (OP, polyclinics) are divided. But first, the station work takes precedence. Lunch is usually every day possible. As only one Department, the Uro offers a $6 food voucher for this purpose the PJlern. In the afternoon, the afternoon meetings, the recordings are discussed, as well as the past OPs is at 15: 00. Then you can go home most of the time. Rare, that one is still there to 18, 19: 00 due to surgery or the station work. Consider a service to join (10: 00 to 8: 00 following day, sleeping in the physician rooms possible) but also with the wizard once. You need to talk that only open. Here you can see often exciting cases and treated patients in regard to the own services in the future independently.
Here, the blood or the creation of access apply once in the morning. Should you not have;) a fear of blood but. It can be like to even up to 25 pieces in the morning. Just when you're alone on station that can take much time. While this is a good exercise but for me at the end unfortunately somewhat monotonous, especially if you want to practice fellow medical activities in the operating room or the clinic. The Sonografieren is probably the 2nd main task on station. As lesion it is responsible for the determination of residual urine and the Nierensonografie, but putting also Sonos of prostate, testicles and the abdomen (free fluid, Lymphocelen, etc.). In addition to katheterisieren (Nelaton, Tiemann, rinsing catheters) to learn and are drugs (E.g. Hexvix to the TURB) / chemos transurethral under medical supervision. Still it is also responsible for common station activities (consultation on the PC register, write letters, call HA). Also you can fill often Rehaanträge (approx. € 29 / application), what is really worthwhile financially after 4 months (because there are Yes No PJ remuneration in Berlin).
Here, on the one hand you can absorb patients that elective surgery. On the other hand you can examine patients of the clinic and treat, who come to the clinic, the follow-up, the chemo or via the emergency room. Ä similar to the station means blood, Sonos, katheterisieren. Regularly there are dance prostate biopsies where you can help out. In the endourology, you can watch various interventions or also assist (when, TURB, D - or MJ insert / change, PNL, URS, ESWL, Nierenfistelkather, etc.). Personal initiative is needed in any case also here. But at the end of a DJ or MonoJ has any lesion from us at least set/changed or zystoskopieren are allowed.
Unfortunately it is never firmly divided into the OP plan but you can always happy to join if the station work is done. Here can you with operate as 2nd Assistant. Questions will be pleased or you get from front in some States. In addition to hooks, flush, sucking a ligature must you sometimes use or at the end of sewing (Intrakutan, subcutaneous skin suture). Even if it is still not so surgically experienced, is declared usually patient and suturing techniques practiced. OP range from small procedures such as Varicoceles, Hydrocelen, twists, Circumcisionen, Condylomlaserung, etc. up to larger operations, such as Prostatektomien, Nephrektomien, Cystectomy with neo bubble / Pouchanlage / conduit or even kidney transplant. If mÃ possible can you perform end as 1st Surgeon a small intervention (E.g., Hydrocele, circumcision).
The medical team as well as the care are extremely nice and helpful. It is a pity that there is unfortunately no proper PJ teaching. But you can always ask problems and it is explained also. Of course, there are also stressful days, where the PJ teaching has no precedence, but I think this is normal. The workday itself teaches it little room for a special PJ as the physician for the normal student courses need spend much time and then stops on the station work.
Overall, I can recommend a Uro four months at the CBF. FÃ Â¼r University Hospital ratios find I do it independently much and sees interesting cases. As a result of the sponsored lunch and the deer which is not doing badly financially one also without further remuneration for PJ.
