University Hospital Consultation Service
Fellows assigned to the University Hospital Consultation Services will be responsible for consultations received by the Pulmonary Division from the UAB Hospital,. 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 interdisciplinary 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. During some months of the year, the consultation service at UH is split in two: pulmonary disease and critical care. The fellow assigned to this service will assist with consultations from the Emergency Department and possible MICU transfers from 7 am to 12 noon to allow the fellows assigned to the MICU services to round with minimal interruption.
