Intro to RWJ C/L

Introduction

This page is dedicated to first-year Psychiatry residents at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School who are rotating in the Division of Consultation Psychiatry. Your Consultation-Liaison (C/L) experience will be at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. You will be assigned to one of two teams (blue or red) staffed by RWJMS teaching faculty certified by the Boards of Psychiatry & Neurology and Psychosomatic Medicine. Objectives for the rotation will be reached in two phases.

Phase 1: The resident will demonstrate competency in the subspecialty of Consultation Psychiatry

During this initial phase, residents will carry a case load of 2-3 patients and report directly to the service attending. Their performance demonstrated pre-rounding, presenting, and treatment planning will be evaluated and documented on resident logs. When the resident log is completed, residents will progress to the level of a “macromanager.”

Phase 2

Residents’ primary responsibilities at this phase will be to supervise students from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the Earnest Mario School of Pharmacy. You will “direct” your own team of learners who provide clinical care to the infirmed at the Cancer Institute of NJ, Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. For more details about your specific responsibilities, refer to the orientation packet you’ll receive at the commencement of the rotation.

Your Clinical Day

PsyfeldTM: 9:00-9:30

Your clinical day will begin with a “show didactic about nothing.” In our PsyfeldTM course, students and residents will discuss a selected Seinfeld episode through a psychiatrist’s lens. Our fictional case discussions not only reach stated goals and objectives but are also broadcasted live on social media and have been the platform for publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Psychiatry residents’ responsibilities include participation in the discussion of psychiatric topics highlighted in the selected Seinfeld episodes.

Morning Rounds: 9:30-12:00

Morning rounds are focused on patient follow-ups and are a combination of traditional bedside rounds, The One Minute Preceptor, and Psychiatry Review through Axis (PRAXIS) assessment.

While Psychiatry residents fill the learner roll in PRAXIS (you’ll be part of a team competing for points), they take on the “teacher” role and run The One Minute Preceptor. For a primer on these microskills of clinical teaching, please click here.

Lunch: 12:00-12:30

FilmulationTM: 12:30-1:30

Our FilmulationTM didactic is a condensed version of our Psychiatry residents’ psychopathology curriculum named Reviewing Mental Disorders with a Reverent Understanding of the Macabre (REDRUMTM) where students and residents discuss selected films through a psychiatrist’s lens. Our fictional case discussions not only reach stated goals and objectives but are also broadcasted live on social media and have been the platform for publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Psychiatry residents’ responsibilities include participation in the discussion of psychiatric topics highlighted in the selected films.

Case Presentations: 1:30-2:30

Throughout the morning, students provide initial psychiatric evaluations when they’re finished presenting their follow-ups. Students will present their patients in the conference room in Suite 2200 as part of a multi-disciplinary case conference.

Residents are responsible to assure the efficient flow of patient care with the primary goal to have students prepared to present their new patient evaluations.

Afternoon Rounds: 2:30-4:30

Following case presentations, our treatment team will go back into the hospital to round on the new consults.

Residents’ responsibilities will include ensuring the effortless flow of communication with the primary teams in conveying our recommendations.

CAB Fare Rounds

Time permitting, students and residents retreat to the CAB Fare Café to discuss assigned films in an open forum that allows for an exchange of ideas about a “deep dive” into what the film “is really about.” Assigned movies will be tweeted at least 48 hours in advance using the hashtag #CABFareRounds.
