Programs and Services

Teaching Service

The members of the DHM faculty are the primary clinical and teaching attendings for the housestaff on the general medicine wards. Teams consist of 2nd and 3rd year residents, interns, 3rd year students, and subinterns. Daily rounds occur at the bedside each morning. Multidisciplinary rounds take place daily at 10am. Teams also meet throughout the day as needed to discuss patient care.

Non-Teaching Service (The Attending Directed Service - ADS)

Hospitalist attendings work with Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) to provide care for patients not covered by house staff.  A 4th year medical student elective takes place on the ADS Service. In addition, Family Medicine interns often rotate for one month on this service. These interns work closely with hospitalist attendings.

Medical Consult Service

Each attending works with a PGY3 resident to provide medical consultation and pre-op evaluations for patients on non-medical services, including Surgery, Rehab, and Psychiatry. Residents receive a curriculum in core topics in Medical Consultation, including concise lectures and key reading list  to ensure they acquire the necessary knowledge and skills.

Vascular Co-Management Program

This program partners a hospitalist attending with the Vascular attendings to ensure all medical comorbidities are managed optimally and in a timely manner. Co-Management replaces standard consultation by providing automatic attending input for each patient admitted to the Vascular Service. A formal agreement delineates the areas primarily covered by the surgical team and those addressed by the hospitalist attending. The program aims to reduce the rate of post-operative complications and decrease length of stay.

Pre-Op Center – Outpatient

The DHM hospitalists run the outpatient Pre-Op Center. This busy clinic evaluates patients who have upcoming surgery at Mount Sinai and at other local centers. The attending supervises Medicine and Anesthesia residents. A formal curriculum teaches the essentials of pre-operative management.
