Dr. Lu listened to my concerns, explained to me his tx and explained to his intern the plan. Both health care professionals were attentive and concerned. I thought it demonstrated the superior teaching skills of Dr. Lu to encourage engagement of his intern. I usually see interns hanging back tentatively while the treating physician explains their actions. Here, both physician and intern were actively engaged. I would submit it makes for a better outcome for the patient and the intern as the intern is actively practicing rather than merely observing, while the patient gets a second set of eyes analyzing the issue. (By the way, this was not a major medical emergency, so maybe the simplicity of the situation lent itself to this result.)
