OBJECTIVES/DESCRIPTION OF CLERKSHIP:
The Pulmonary clerkship is a combination inpatient/outpatient experience in association with the Pulmonary Fellowship at Madigan. Students will have an opportunity to attend on the wards, attend the daily morning report, have a morning clinic, and perform afternoon inpatient consults. In addition to the broad spectrum of clinical problems normally seen on this service, additional training will occur with a weekly core curriculum lecture series, a weekly Grand Rounds, a Case Management Conference, Thoracic Surgery Conference, a bimonthly conference at the University of Washington, and a monthly Pathology Conference. The clerk will be directly supervised by a staff member and by a pulmonary fellow. Students will be assigned approximately two to four inpatients to follow and one new consult and two to three follow-up patients per clinic. Text preference is "Manual of Clinical Problems in Pulmonary Medicine," edited by Bardow and Moser. Students will be performing a consultative service with opportunities to do occasional thoracentesis, exercise studies, arterial blood gas, and pulmonary function interpretation. Teaching is considered one of the highest priorities on this rotation.
