Iowa City VA Medical Center Medicine Service

Three teams, comprised of a Teaching Hospitalist, one senior resident, two interns, a pharmacist, and medical students admit, diagnose, and manage a populations of veterans with a wide range of medical conditions. The Iowa City VA features an open ICU which allows the inpatient teams to care for a mixture of ward and ICU patients. The ICU patients are staffed daily with a pulmonary/critical care staff physician and fellow.

Each inpatient team admits daily, with interns rotating on overnight call every 6th night. The senior resident is not responsible for overnight admissions, as this is covered by a night-float senior.
