This fellow is responsible for the consult service as well as either clinic or the OR for the week. There is a resident that does the initial consult but the fellow is the first line of advice and guidance throughout the day. After clinic or the OR cases are done, the fellow will round on consults on the floors and units with the staff attending.
Afterwards, the fellow finishes work that may be leftover from the day (dictations, updating patient databases, ordering intrathecal meds, making the next day’s schedule. etc). Average time of departure ranges from 6 - 8 p.m., sometimes later and sometimes earlier depending on the day.
