Duke pediatrician Sarah Germana, MD, left, and Lauren McGill, MD, first-year pediatric resident, examine Scarlett Pelletier of Durham, who was the first baby born in 2015 at 8:15am on Jan. 1 at Duke University Hospital. As a first-year resident (also called intern), McGill has been learning what's within the normal range for babies' heart murmurs, lung sounds and reflexes. "I did catch a kid who had a clavicular fracture," said McGill of a baby who had a broken shoulder bone after being pushed out by the mom. "It's been challenging, but rewarding."
