Consultant to Other Physicians
The resident is expected to integrate laboratory findings from Chem/Immuno testing with clinical status, surgical pathology results, bone marrows, and other clinical tests (for example correlating a monoclonal gammopathy on serum protein electrophoresis with multiple myeloma on bone marrow). Residents have the responsibility, under faculty supervision, of discussing the interpretive consultative reports with appropriate members of the clinical/surgical teams. Through their discussions with the clinical team members, the residents have the opportunity to directly impact patient care. The resident is expected to interact on a daily ongoing basis with the clinical services in gathering important clinical history, reviewing slide material with the clinical services, and making recommendations for further assessment of abnormal Chem/Immuno assays. Through their discussions with the clinical team members, the residents have the opportunity to directly impact patient care.
