UC Davis graduating class of 2017

University of
California, Davis
By Charandip Sandhu, MD
It's been an exciting new academic year!
We kicked off this year by welcoming our 14 new CBY
Interns. Our interns train at UC Davis Health and at
VA Northern California Health. Rotations include
inpatient medicine, inpatient surgery, cardiac inpatient
services, SICU, MICU, echocardiography, perioperative
pain, preoperative medicine, emergency medicine, and
OR anesthesiology. We look forward to their seamless
transition into their CA-1 year this coming July.
We introduced the Non-Operating Room Anesthesia
rotation this year for our CA-3s. Our residents will
also rotate through Sutter OB starting this January
2018. CA-1s will begin rotating through the VA in
July. Residents continue to participate in International
Rotaplast trips to care for children needing cleft lip/
palate repairs. This year, Mike Yim, CA-3, went to India
and Janell Aguirre, CA-3, visited Bangladesh.
We implemented the Resident Academic Project
Oversight Committee to provide a longitudinal,

structured approach for our residents, geared toward
scholarly and creative research activities. We also
started a Resident Steering Committee to encourage
formal resident feedback and interaction between
the CCC, the Education Committee, and the
administration.
To help foster a culture of patient safety and quality
improvement, we now have a monthly Quality
Improvement Patient Safety Conference. Zar Baqai,
CA-3, won the institution-wide GME High Value
Competition this year.
Our UC Davis Children's Hospital was re-verified as a
Level I Children's Surgery Center by American College
of Surgeons. UC Davis Children's Hospital remains the
first hospital on the West Coast, and only the fourth in
the nation, to earn this distinction.
Residents are gearing up for the Echo Course starting
this January which involves formal didactic sessions
and image review. We have also provided our residents
with a Board Review program to help in preparation for
the Basic Echo Board. We have a few faculty members
who will be taking the exam this coming July as well.
Lifelong learning!
