Medical Residents Medical residents may provide medical checkups in a teaching facility under the guidance of the attending staff as long as the facility’s medical staff by-laws and requirements of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Program are met, and the attending physician has determined the intern or resident to be competent to perform checkups. THSteps does not require the supervising physician to examine the client as long as these conditions are met.
