Yale Consult Service
The Yale Consult team receives vital exposure to a wide range of neurological complications of systemic disease, as well as the more common primary neurological disorders. This rotation provides the senior neurology resident a valuable opportunity to practice the often complex but important skill of effective neurological consultation and team management. Due to the large size of the service a 2nd consult resident (any PGY level) assists the senior resident with evaluating consults. Together, the two residents see all inpatient consults except pediatric patients. Rounds are held daily on weekdays with the consult attending and the team usually had 1-2 medical students. The consult team acts as the main liaison between the Neurology Department and other services in the hospital for inpatient care, and thus must provide prompt, courteous, useful and thorough evaluations.
