On service

Posting may be a bit light the next two weeks since I'm "on service." This means I'm the attending (responsible physician) for a variety of patients admitted to the hospital, mostly outside my specialty. At my hospital there is a seperate service with expert attendings that care for most of the inpatients, so our role is a lot of teaching, with enough patients to make me nervous. Hopefully, I'll survive.

I distributed this from Madhouse Madman about the various members of an inpatient team to all the residents and fellows. They didn't seem to be amused but I thought it was hilarious.
