During the inpatient component, the student will see 1-2 consultations per day. He/she completes the evaluation and develops a differential diagnosis with management recommendations. A fellow and senior staff gastroenterologist or hepatologist reviews the student’s evaluation and findings and makes the final recommendations. During the outpatient component, the student sees 1-2 outpatient consults per week in a similar fashion. It is at the discretion of the staff whether the student shadows in clinic or sees the patient independently first. The student attends all teaching conferences.
