In Patient Endocrinology & Diabetology Consults

The Resident is assigend to cover inpatient consultations. It is expected that Residents will have already have had ample experience with routine in-patient diabetes care on their general medicine rotations. Thus, with the exeption of managing admitted pregnant patients with diabetes in labor, in -patient diabetes care should not take preference over other educational opportunities such as outpatient clinics or teaching sessions. In patient endocrine consultations (adrenal disorders, pituitary disorders, calcuium disorders, etc) however, may provide an excellent learning opportunity and occasion for one on one teaching with the staff endocrinologist.
