Description of Resident Experience
Upper level resident physicians in OB-GYN spend three contiguous months on the oncology service. New patient evaluation, preoperative assessment, and follow-up visits are accomplished in the clinic. The resident is first assistant on all oncology procedures. A comprehensive review of evaluation and treatment of the oncology patient is the goal. Critical care of the postoperative patient, including blood component therapy, pain management, as well as rehabilitation are emphasized.
A multimodal approach to care of the oncology patient in a collaborative practice setting is unique. The upper level resident is an integral part of the oncology team, which includes nurses, social worker, dietitian, enterostomal therapist, consulting specialists, and gynecologic oncologists.Wesley Medical Center has three DaVinci robots that are utilized by the gynecologic oncologists for select abdominal and staging procedures.
