Hey. Question for the group:
For those programs that are based under emergency medicine, do your fellows practice independently and supervise residents? Or are they still being directly supervised by attending physicians? The RRC rules apparently prohibit peds-trained PEM fellows from supervising emergency medicine residents. Has anybody found a way to work around this?
If the fellows are not practicing independently, how do you share procedures among fellows and residents? I'm curious to see how other programs are handling this issue. Thanks for your input.
