Psychosomatic Medicine (C/L)

Consultation services for adult patients are provided to all clinical departments at the Hershey Medical Center, including Critical Care, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Transplant Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Oncology, Endocrinology, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Family and Community Medicine.

On this service, the Psychiatric resident works closely with faculty and residents in other departments. The goal of each consultation is to offer practical recommendations that assist consulting physicians, residents, and nursing staff in caring for their patients. Medical students rotating in Psychiatry are also part of the consult team, where residents are expected to enhance their learning experience by participating in medical student teaching.
