Physician absence notification

From U of M Internal Medicine Wiki

This page lays out the process of sending out notifications about physician absences.

  • Several secretary pages mention this. While there will be unique people who need to be notified for only certain physicians, it would still be good to standardize the part that involves e.g. Medical Records and paging etc.
