Our inpatient teams assume primary responsibility for both general pediatric and medical subspecialty inpatients. Some surgical subspecialty patients are followed by pediatric residents in co-management, allowing exposure to these fields.
Residents participate on five inpatient teams:
- Purple and Blue: provides care for mostly general pediatric patients supervised by hospitalists
- Silver: provides care for pulmonology, cardiology and neurology
- Green: provides care for gastroenterology and nephrology
- Red: provides care for hematology and oncology
All of our teams include a senior resident and two PL-1 residents or intern equivalents (family medicine interns or sub-intern medical students). Medical students are present on all inpatient teams and residents are primary contacts for education and clinical skills.
