Resident Manual

The information in this Manual is designed to provide a reference for many of the questions you may have during your education as you become involved in patient care. If an answer is not found here, you are encouraged to call the service in question and to consult the institutional Standard Practices available at each hospital or medical institution.

The GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) will make reasonable efforts to notify Residents of any material changes in the Resident Manual. The SMHS’s current notice practice is to e-mail changes to the Resident Manual to the Resident’s University e-mail address maintained by the Office of Graduate Medical Education. It is the Resident Physician's responsibility to monitor his or her University email account for information on any changes.
