Consultation Liaison

Our department provides inpatient psychiatric consultation services to the university hospital, the private Martha Jefferson Hospital, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, Kluge Pediatric Rehab center, and emergency departments at both the main medical center and MJH.

In addition to regular consultative services the consult team is part of the Behavioral Emergency Response Team (BERT). The CL resident is a first responder to any patient caused behavioral emergency that occurs in the hospital or contiguous clinic and reports to the attending on call or CL attending.

Residents in their first, second, and fourth years of training rotate on the service and are supervised by rotating physicians. The attending physician and senior resident are responsible for didactics and supervision particular to this service. Third and fourth year medical students rotate on the service and see patients and participate in care.
