University Hospital Consult Service
The fellow assigned to the University Hospital Consult Service will be responsible for consultations received by the Pulmonary Division from UAB Medical Center, excluding the MICU and BVAMC. The fellow on Consults should see these patients with the medicine resident and the student before attending rounds. While patient care is the foremost responsibility of the fellow on this service, diplomacy and interservice relationships are important and must be taken into account. Time of daily rounds with faculty varies with faculty members assigned, but is usually in the morning.
The Pulmonary fellow assigned to this service is also responsible for supervision of methacholine challenge tests and cardiopulmonary exercise tests performed at the University Hospital.
