You are asked by the CEO of your hospital to contribute to the annual report. She wants you to write a five-page paper generally describing each of the ten departments in your hospital (Dermatology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Pulmonary, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopedics, and Neurology).
•Include the most common diseases seen in each department, using examples of patient cases from each department.
•Include the principal procedures and services that are relevant to each department.
•Highlight pertinent laboratory and radiological diagnostic services contributed to each of the ten departments.
•Identify the specialty teams in the respective departments and the services they offer.
Discuss all the details of this paper with your classmates (e.g. what would the most common procedures be in each department? What diseases would patients present with? How would they be worked up in the appropriate department? What diagnostic procedures would be necessary for a given case?, etc.). Once you have discussed the paper in detail with your colleagues, then write your contribution to the annual report.
