Medicine residents during their third year spend two weeks performing medical consultation for non-medicine services, including psychiatry, obstetrics, gynecology, and surgery. Hospital medicine physicians staff each new and established patient with the residents daily during rounds, teaching principles of patient care and inpatient consultation. Consults provide another opportunity for Hospital medicine physicians to share their expertise in clinical and bedside care with medicine residents.
