SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Most of my rotations didn't allow medical students (M3 or M4) to enter orders into the computer even before rounding. I feel that this is bit of a concern since I didn't get practice coming up with what to order for some of the most common conditions I will see as an intern. My residents were so busy that most of the times I couldn't sit down to ask them if they'd run through their train of thoughts when deciding what to order for patients we had either. I just want to know what percentage of med students actually get to put orders in patients' charts/computer (albeit not effective until an attending/resident signs it).
