New Inpatient Subspecialty Teams

Hematology – Allergy – Immunology – Rheumatology and Pulmonary – Endocrinology – Adolescent – Renal

In an effort to create more educational and clinically effective inpatient ward teams, last year we created a new team and grouped complementary subspecialty services together. The new inpatient team with its home base on 6E is the ‘HAIR’ Team consisting of the Hematology, Allergy, Immunology, and Rheumatology services. As a result, the remaining subspecialty services based on 7W form a smaller team with fewer subspecialties, named the ‘PEAR’ Team. That team consists of the Pulmonary Medicine, Endocrinology, Adolescent Medicine, and Renal services. These smaller teams will provide additional Junior Resident Supervisory Experiences and new opportunities to attend ambulatory subspecialty clinics. As described in the section above, these smaller teams include outpatient time in subspecialty clinics to broaden the subspecialty experience with a focus on the common referrals to the subspecialties from general pediatricians.
