Fellow UWHA Members,
 

SHHH...REMEMBER TO RESPECT THE PRIVACY OF OUR PATIENTS

At the beginning of every year we like to remind our team members that conversations regarding patient care should not happen in public spaces.  Even when not using patient identifiers, conversations in elevators, the cafeterias, and hallways can be overheard.  Comments regarding the difficulty of a surgery, problem patient, or troubling social situation can be misconstrued or even heard by family members of the person you are discussing.  Please be mindful of your patient care discussions and keep them private.  Thank you.

University of Michigan Housestaff President Answers Your Questions

Attached is an open letter to UW housestaff, written by the house officer association (HOA) president at the University of Michigan, Michael Lanham, MD. 
If you have a few minutes, I ask that you read it. Dr. Lanham is currently a fellow, has been president of the HOA for a number of years, and in the letter he addresses a number of issues that have been raised by UW housestaff during our exploration of restructuring.
