Dating chief resident
To date the CRIT program has been conducted over 30 times at 16 institutions nationwide.
CRIT program participants include chief residents as well as faculty responsible for residency training in surgical and medical specialties.
Residents have crazy things happen to them, often multiple crazy things on the same day. At least then you know what your resident is talking about, a little bit. Your resident does not want to perform physical exams at Thanksgiving. Recognize sleep deprivation for what it is, and not a larger sign of relationship trouble. Your resident is not trying to be difficult, or selfish, or lazy. It is likely very frustrating for your resident to watch Grey's Anatomy or its television siblings. Don't make that difficult by complaining it's late, there are dinner plans, and there is no time to shower.
Your resident probably doesn't know enough to actually help, even if he or she wanted to -- and, most likely, he or she doesn't want to. But that knee pain, or those warts -- tell them to see their actual doctor, and hold the questions. That's not an excuse, but understand that on the rare day off, maybe 13 hours of sleep is what your resident needs, even more than a delicious brunch that you even made a reservation for. Indulge your resident's use of the pause button on the DVR when watching shows with medical elements.

Six-month follow-up surveys with chief residents who have participated in CRIT showed that they: A toolkit was developed to assist CRIT programs with fundraising, institutional adoption, and sustainability of their local CRIT programs.
If, on the other hand, your resident doesn't want to talk about Patient Smith, or Patient Anyone, don't push. Non-medical things are interesting to residents, especially after a 27 hour shift talking only about medicine. Also understand if the last thing your resident wants to watch on a day off are shows about medicine.
But if your resident wants to talk about Patient Smith, and wants reassurance that he or she didn't accidentally kill Patient Smith, try and listen. People in law or finance or medicine or anything technical. If you are dating a resident, try and read some stuff about residency. Understand the frustration, and let your resident vent for fifteen seconds before continuing the show.
Program participants include both Chief Residents and faculty responsible for residency training in surgical and medical specialties.
The program brings these individuals together for an intensive two-day program focused on: The CRIT program is administered by the Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs (ADGAP) in partnership with BU/BMC, with grants from the Hearst Foundations and the Donald W.
The toolkit may also be useful for those interested in developing a CRIT program without external funding.
