Family Medicine VA surgery rotation Guidelines.


  1.  If a particular Family Medicine (FM) resident wants to do minor procedures, this will be encouraged and they can participate each Monday morning starting around 9am in the second floor minor procedure room.  The 2nd year FM resident will have priority, however.
  2. Similarly, FM residents wanting to be in the operating room will be encouraged to do so; surgical residents will have priority.  They must meet the patient prior to going into a case.  This also applies to endoscopy cases on the 4th floor, GI suites.
  3. Morning rounds:  FM residents will be encouraged to contact the appropriate attending if there remain questions about a patient’s care after the general surgery residents have “left to the O.R.”
  4. Please contact Dr. Ketteler at 530-4124 to arrange a “day on Vascular Surgery.”  This will likely be on a Wednesday morning, if interested.
  5. On the first week of the Family Medicine Resident’s VAMC rotation, I or a surrogate will go over the goals and expectations of the rotation.
  6. I or a surrogate will do a midpoint feedback during the midpoint of the rotation.
  7. FM residents are encouraged to come to and participate in the Tumor Board conference on Tuesday at 12:30 pm,  pathology conference on Thursdays at 0730, and attending rounds on Fridays at noon followed by didactics when available.
