Very helpful..would you as well be able to tell me about informed consent and how it relates to a new/inexperienced MD? Our practice doesn't seem to point out that fact…only if the patient asks.
Informed consent under these circumstances would be providing the patient with enough information so that the patient can make a decision as to consenting to being treated by the inexperienced physician. Preferably, the informed consent should be in writing.
