Clinical informationists work directly with attending faculty, residents, medical students, and pharmacists in university-related hospitals. As “embedded” librarians on hospital rotations, they provide research support in a variety of disciplines (e.g., internal medicine, geriatrics); participate in clinical rounds and patient care discussions; and identify relevant material in the medical literature for use in patient care, education, and research.
This service is available on a cost recovery basis. Established in 2009, the Library’s Clinical Informationist Program has served the Infectious Disease Liaison Consult Service, Simmons Cancer Center Liaison Consult Service, Psychiatry Liaison Consult Service, Internal Medicine Resident Report Conference, and the Eisenberg (Geriatrics) Service.
