General Endocrine Consultations
The fellow is part of a consult team that includes the fellow, the attending physician, and often an internal medicine resident and/or a fourth year medical student. Educational bedside rounds with designated staff take place several times a week. Fellows participate in consultative activities on the inpatient service at the three different CPMC campuses.
Inpatient Diabetes Mellitus Team
The fellow will also be part of the CPMC inpatient diabetes team. CPMC's inpatient diabetes team consists of a clinical nurse specialist, physicians, and certified diabetes educators. The fellow will gain valuable experience in the management of complex hospitalized patients with diabetes mellitus. We have been awarded the Joint Commission's Advanced Disease-Specific Certification in Inpatient Diabetes. This Certificate of Distinction for Inpatient Diabetes Care recognizes hospitals that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes across all inpatient settings. We would welcome the involvement of our endocrine fellow in quality improvement efforts targeted at inpatient diabetes. Please contact Melissa Weinberg, MD, Medical Director of Inpatient Diabetes, or Aileen McAllister, RN-CDE, CNS for additional information.
