He had three goals upon arrival:
1) doing shifts in the emergency department at a local hospital here,
2) executing our research project on the utilization of point of care ultrasound with the goal of investigating potential behavioral economics interventions to increase its use among emergency department residents, and
3) taking full immersion Spanish classes.

How would he fit that into four short weeks?
