Your first day
You will be expected to give a 10-minute presentation on a research/clinical topic of your choice during your rotation. This talk will be given on a Thursday morning as part of weekly Grand Rounds. Please inform the residents of your talk title.
Please remember to return your pager and key on the last day of your rotation so that we may release your evaluation. You must return the key and the beeper to Shaun White (Neurological Institute, 4th floor). You cannot give your key and/or pager to one of the residents or the next sub-intern.
It is up to you to arrange to attend outpatient office hours with several attendings during your rotation. No more than one sub-intern should be with an attending during any given session. Look at the monthly calendar and discuss who will see patients with which attending on which days with the other sub-I’s. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know individual attendings better and also to learn more about the evaluation and decision-making side of neurosurgery. Please touch base with the attending’s secretary the day before your day of choice to confirm that the attending will be seeing patients that day and to let them know you will be there.
Note: Check with the doctor’s secretary in case there have been changes to the schedule.

Blood exposures are a medical emergency — wherever they occur
A bloodborne pathogen exposure can result not just from a needle stick but also from the exposure of nonintact skin or any mucosal surface to blood or other potentially infectious body fluids (e.g., semen, vaginal secretions, breast milk, CSF, peritoneal or pericardial fluid, saliva in dental procedures, or any fluid contaminated by blood).
Follow these steps immediately!
– at the Student Health Service if you are at Columbia
– at the Emergency Room if SHS is closed
– if you are on an away rotation, at the Occupational Health Service or Emergency Room of that hospital
There will be no charge to you.
Remember the acronym CITES: Clean, Inform (need for immediate evaluation), Testing of source patient, Evaluation at SHS (or ER if SHS is closed or you are away).
