Resident-Initiated Clinic Experience – “RICE”


Provide educational opportunities unique to Bethel experience as an adjunct to primary care clinic


RICE day will be an 8 to 12 hour shift

Plan your desired activities for a RICE day at least 5 days ahead of the day it is scheduled.

Review your plan with site director or designated faculty member no later than 48 hours before each RICE day

Check in with designated faculty at start of RICE day – this will be your point of contact for the day. She/he will arrange for you to work either in clinic or on the inpatient side if your planned RICE activities fall through

Keep activity log of experiences, length of time spent, point of contact

De-brief RICE experiences at end of day with faculty

De-brief RICE experiences with residency director at end of week

Evaluate your RICE activity after each RICE day so that we can continue to add/subtract/improve these educational experiences for future residents
