A very brilliant fundraising strategy, actually, for the D o m anyway. Eso I'm here to talk a little bit about what I love about MGH. Well, everyone's probably said this, but I really love the people. I used to tell my co interns when I was an intern that I would want any one of them to take care of someone in my family e feel like way put our patients first, get things done for them, and it's really important that we think about them and their care in the context of who they are. So I'm a primary care doctor at Chelsea M J Chelsea Health Care Center, which is one of our three major health care centers. I also do a lot of work in immigrant health and work with our Social Justice Advocacy Coalition, which is a group of mostly trainees who are passionate about issues of social justice, including segregated care, anti racist work, correctional health and working with our patients who have been in and out of incarceration. Working with immigrants who have limited health insurance. Are often coming from countries where they've experienced a lot of trauma on then also working with our rural health, Native American populations, American Indian populations. Um, it's been really inspiring toe learn from the residents and from my colleagues who have made this their life's work. So we're very excited to have you come and join us and you know, anyone of us air here. I think that being a chief resident has been an incredible experience thus far, and the best part of it is working with residents. Hi, I'm John Sailor on the chief President and cardiology. Fellas, we hear the ether dough, which is actually the first place in the world that use anesthesia for a surgery in 18 46. William Thomas Green Morton form a dental procedure right here in the dome. So I think my favorite thing about MGH is the ethic of education. We have a whole cadre of educators called Core Educator faculty whose entire job is to rotate and teach on the Bigelow services all year long. Our juniors who run the big teams teach both on round and the afternoon giving chop talks, additionally have three different conferences throughout the year. Three year starter with what's called in to report, which happened July and August as it is, a conference very dedicated, just interns as they start their internship. We have resin report that happens three times per week on this is what we discussed case in either faculty or fellows, uh, as a case copper. In addition to that, at the end of every month, we have a new journal, CPC, which is really amazing, which hopefully you'll see on your interview day, which is when we have a case presentation of unknown diagnosis and one of our faculty discussed. We haven't We have a whole host of conferences for you to attend, and hopefully you will get a chance to see one on your interview day with us. I'm also one of the oncology fellows were actually in the in patient oncology building Now lender, which has a beautiful view of the cities you can see over here. One thing I really love about MGH, I think one of our absolute best features of the residents e learned so much from the residents every day whether I'm attending and learning from the interns or the juniors for running the team versus in the morning. GCC emphasis on wellness We have the shorts initiative, which is one of the resident wellness groups. They dio amazing efforts such as reflection sessions outside of the intensive care units they dio Sunday night salons, which just opportunities to get together and especially distant way. E think just this general sense of community is my favorite parts of change. We were so excited to welcome you to MGH. Hi, everyone. My name is Allie and I'm one of the chief President. Last year I was an infectious disease fellow, um, during a pandemic, which obviously was a challenge. What made it so inspiring during the challenges that we face was being surrounded by the people and one of the reasons why I love MGH and the reason why I chose to come here eyes because of the community and the people who I met on the Can't you be dead So I'm sorry that you can't be here with us in person, but I hope that you get a sense of what our culture is and what our ethos iss by our videos. As you can see, I am a huge fan of plants and anything green. One of the things that I wanted to talk to you about today is the aside from the folks who who come to this program, who are incredibly humble and kind and approachable. Is there, um, intellectual curiosity that we sort of face every day on our in patient medical teens are outpatient settings and also in one of the electives called pathways, where we allow you to take two weeks to really focus in on one patient who you find perplexing. This is often a person who has been evaluated by many different consultants and has some sort of syndrome that we just have not identified yet with our limited, um, medical work up thus far and So we allow residents to take the time to really think about the mechanisms of disease, about the biology to speak with world experts here at NGH, which makes us such a unique program.
