They pretty much always perform sensis we ask for! Must have faith that we only request them if really clinically relevant (which I hope is the truth).

I could not do my job without the micro lab! Thanks for not being (acting?) annoyed when I request adding on weird antimicrobial sensitivities. You guys help save lives!

Great tip! Helpful to keep in mind, too, that coming in early doesn't mean you'll be done early. It can be quiet all day... until three 3:30 pm consults roll in... Managing expectations is key.

Last, beware infectious mimickers, of which there are many, and try to learn as much as possible about them when they come up. You’ll do great!!

Many consults start to feel mundane midway through the year, but remember just a few short months ago ID was new/mysterious to you too, that every consult is a chance to learn a new tidbit — and that a consult is a call for help!

So many gems on this thread already — to echo some of them: Trust but verify (be wary of curbsides, prior diagnoses); seek human contact both in and out of the hospital (your cofellows and colleagues in path, micro, other subspecialties, the primary team)

YES. Super important to find out *how* a prior diagnosis was made and to see the primary data yourself if at all possible!

Nail-biting (and educational!) thread. Would you feel prepared to treat a cardiac arrest mid-air with minimal supplies?!

I sometimes worry about “bothering” a patient’s PCP because I know you guys are so busy (although none I’ve spoken to have been anything but gracious) — good to know a call from an inpatient team is appreciated and helpful!

So disheartening! Sadly, not surprised by that patient's behavior, but horrified that another healthcare professional would remain silent in that setting.

Yes, assuming the EMR where the patient has been admitted has that capability! (We rotate at three different hospitals w/three different EMRs)

Same goes for ID docs. So many pix of infected wounds!

✅ Final grand rounds of first-year fellowship I talked about phage therapy. In its honor, enjoy this vintage image of a phage doing its thing!
