Abstract

In an effort to clarify the role of the psychiatrist as a consultant in a general hospital, a survey was made of how frequently physicians on various services requested consultations, what problems led to the consultation requests, and which psychiatric services the requesting physicians considered most valuable. Results showed wide variations between and within the medical services, pointing up the need for the psychiatric consultant to be trained in a multiplicity of consulting roles.
