Wondering what everyone's scope of practice is and what parts of the country you are in...( ie procedures, OB or not, hospital rounds or not, etc.)

I'm in Upstate New York. No OB; we do hospital rounds (I personally wish we'd have the hospitalist group take over, but I'm out-voted by my group). I do moles/sebaceous cysts/skin tags/warts/basic suturing, also endometrial biopsies. Got good at sigs in training, but no scope at the office. Need to get trained in colpo's (didn't do enough inresidency to feel comfortable).

I am from upstate NY originally...obviously did a lot of rotations w/ FP around there...you could
suggest what we have (one of you is hospitalist all week and never sees the office) and then you rotate...that way you get the best of both worlds without being bothered with calls/pages all the time

I agree- that's why I'll drop OB someday

I'm in the SF Bay Area. I do OB, colpo's, skin procedures, EMB's, casting, ER stuff for my own patients, hospital rounding. I'd love it if could hand off all my hospital work (except OB)to a hospitalist - but its really frowned upon by my group.

Maybe I should move to Wisconsin - the money really sucks here and the cost of living is terrible. :rolleyes:

I have interviewed at places that use a hospitalist system but I'd get nervous that I would lose my inpatient abilites...
