How do I create a five-page paper describing 10 departments in a hospital Derm, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Pulmonary, Cardio, Endocrinology, OB/GYN, Ortho, Neuro?

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.

The information you have included tells you exactly what you must include in this paper.  The directions at the end are very specific that first you gather all the required information, then discuss all the details which are listed (eg list) and then write YOUR CONTRIBUTION to the annual report.  Is your contribution supposed to be a five page paper? If it is, then you need to use the gathered information, decide what your thesis statement will be, and prove your thesis with the information you have gathered and discussed.  For example, one approach might be that a modern hospital includes many departments where each department does general screening yet each has sub-specialties within each department.  This thesis might allow for you to include all the professor wants in your contribution. Don't let the five pages scare you as the process for writing a paper is almost the same no matter the length.
