VA Medical Center Rotations

At the Omaha VA, one neurology resident (PGY-2 to PGY-4) level is assigned to the inpatient consult service for either 2-4 week blocks from 0800-1700.  Neurology is a consult service only and does not admit patients. In addition to responding to inpatient consults, the VA resident is also responsible for answering E-consults with non-urgent questions from outpatient providers.  On occasion, the VA inpatient resident will provide coverage for the outpatient VA continuity clinics when the general neurology clinic resident is unavailable or if there are other unanticipated issues.
