What do you call an elevator full of Nephrologists?
A lot of fun!
The high level of energy, enthusiasm and cameraderie of the teams that staff the general nephrology consults was captured in a selfie this week.
According to Dr. Steven Cheng (the very enthusiastic physician in the back of the photo) all 3 consult teams meet up in the afternoon to do teaching rounds. They had just finished rounds and were on their way en masse to pathology to review the slides of a patient who was biopsied the day before.
“Not a very professional picture, but it very much captures the fun vibe our teams have been having,” said Cheng.
