Pulmonary Rotations

Rounds .jpgUniversity Pulmonary Inpatient and Consultation Services

Trainees assume direct patient care responsibilities for patients admitted to the Pulmonary Medicine service. Under the guidance of the Attending Physician, the fellow will participate in all management decisions that involve patients for whom he or she assumes primary care. This rotation also involves consultations called by hospitalists, medical subspecialists, non-medical specialists, Cardiac/Cardiothoracic Surgery, Neurological, Trauma, Surgical ICUs, as well as Bone Marrow Unit and Organ Transplant Services. Fellows will develop expertise in flexible bronchoscopy (and its attendant skills) primarily during this rotation. More experience with advanced techniques will follow in the second and third years of training in their interventional pulmonary medicine rotations.

Memorial Pulmonary Consultation Service

Fellows manage all in-patient consultations, including consultations on the OB/Gyn service, Orthopedic service, Surgical ICU, and Hospitalists. They are tasked with increased autonomy and primary decision making and will perform all necessary procedures as indicated.
