Resident Supervision

Resident Supervision 

A congenial, supportive environment is the cornerstone for all efforts to optimize patient care and limit
medical errors. The key to achieving this environment is effective communication and teamwork.
As an attending physician, it is your responsibility to provide leadership in promoting effective
communication and a collaborative approach to patient care. You are ultimately responsible for the care
that your supervisees render.
As a resident physician, you need to balance your independence with a certain level of restraint and
caution, escalating questions and concerns as they arise.
