Elective Report from June 8, 2013

Supervision 4/5 Teaching 4/5 Leisure 5/5 Translated
Application: About the University. With us, the House was not very popular, because the trip to Bonn about takes 4 h in public transport. (Capacity: 30 lesion, actually 4 - at nearly 1,000 beds)
In essence (of course) is used in the operating room, in addition to rotates 4 weeks on the surgical intensive care unit (see below). You can also always running with the ambulance, must inquire the day before whether a wizard or a RA in training runs with, if not, get clothes and go. There is also a very good palliative Ward, my knowledge can you get rotate there also, I didn't realize but the possibility. The day starts at 7:15 with the early meeting (sometimes it is at 7:15 already, sometimes she only starts at 7:25; 7:15 there be ok is absolute), then it goes briefly on a cup of coffee in the staff canteen (coffee! Great cappuccino for 70 cents) and at 7:30 in the operating room. In the early meeting, you will be allocated usually a doctor/Hall. For me, this was the case; in approximately 50% of the time otherwise, the chef has taken me to the page (at the beginning) and introduced me to a doctor (approx. 40 doctors in the Department, takes a little, until you've seen them all). Your own desires, what doctors and subjects are ok and encouraged. I never saw the obstetrics, could think about because something must - drill earlier am no later than shortly after the beginning of the Tertials, what it all to see / do want. As in the anesthesia, you do early much (under supervision), as soon as you demonstrated that you know what you are doing. And as always, every doctor has his own opinions, as long as there is no evidence in one direction or the other (volume management - ask me ;-)) Would let me sleep set basically by everyone from the Department. Many surgeons don't like it, if the lesion quietly tells something about drugs, but no problems to talk at the same time yourself about your weekend have * grumble * at lunch it is thrown (typically with the doctor went with); If you even have to eat at another time, 3 to 5 anesthesiologists/anesthesia sisters at dinner are also so most. The mood in the Department is excellent, even with the care. Expects to make to have lots of fun, and to be an Anaesthetic at ASA I/II patients themselves after the four months in a position to be able, with all the bells and whistles. Judging by the way just in time; If you have time earlier to training, that's no problem. A rotation on intensive (8.7) is compulsory; It runs a rotation (early, late, night, free) with a doctor. You have to work on weekends, but freely has also one week at a time at the end (no study days, no days - time off in lieu) because one of 4 weeks at a time on a doctor on the Chapel, you pick someone who can well with you. (should be no problem, nice Department) Have designed for me an intense book and regretted not, after all, to do intensive training 6 months in most. === To the PJ General: House the maximum care, nearly 1,000 beds. Covers almost every subject, no cardiac surgery, neurosurgery "only" by two physicians, orthopaedic absent, there is 200 m further is an orthopedic clinic. The rules for payment, housing (in the dorm, right next to the hospital, bearable, but after a year of somewhat closely) and study days are constantly, changing (thanks, University of Bonn) just ask. Classes are 4 times a week for each 1 to 1.5 h instead, namely surgery, internal, radiology and a changing trade. You will find the current training schedule on the homepage of the clinic. The training courses are generally very good; I rarely regret, are to be gone (already required). The training take place Mon to Thu, so that one can think his free days on Fri (previously there were times more study days). As the lesion to do 8 times a service in the Central pit in the four months. It is associated with in general internal medicine and looks after their own patients after consultation (don't worry, you will be introduced slowly and the patient is seen at the end of the PJs still by a doctor). If less is going on in the inner (= rare), helps you there where is busy or attaches itself to someone off, whose skilled care a. The ZNA services are not paid, but 1:1 at activities balanced as far as possible on the following day, but as the head of own has to have a say (when, not if). The service plans be folded actually always quite well after consultation with the Director who has TSNA creates lesion, with us. If you want to earn money, you can on surgical reputation services (= hook keeping, by the surgeon almost expects to do that) attend or teach in nursing school (time hardly possible, because in the morning). I found the atmosphere in the House generally very collegial and friendly, it is not only "the lesion" as lesion fully integrated into the team and is. There are exceptions of course, but less than during my internships. If you time (leisure time - unfortunately) another Department try wants, are actually all happy, you get placed no obstacles in the way.
