About Dr. Lucy Fields
correct me if im wrong but in the first episode of Dr. Fields (OBGYN) when sloan ask's her who she is and what her credentials are... didn't she say she was a 4th year resident?? but shes wearing the dark blue scrubs so that makes her an attending ... am the only one that caught this ? or did she say she was an attending during callie's appt??
@tramaze She actually said... "Lucy Fields, Harvard M.D., Duke ob-gyn resident, and now maternal-fetal medicine fellow at Seattle Grace Mercy West."
so if shes a fellow then she's not an attending...all fellows have attendings...but we don't see lucy interact with one on the show because i guess shes suppose to play the attending.... a little medical error .. but its a tv show so they can do whatever they want lol
anyway, she's cute with alex ... i like them two together.. too bad she'll be leaving for Charlie's Angels... maybe she do guest staring like kate walsh .....that would be cool
@tramaze: It's not an error. She is an attending, an OBGYN attending, but an attending none the less. Fields completed her OBGYN residency, which means she holds attending status as an OBGYN attending. Any OBGYN resident would have to answer to her. As an MFM-fellow, she reports to a perinatology/perinatal surgical attending. Once she completes her fellowship, she would be an attending perinatologist/perinatal surgeon.
If Addison was still on staff, Fields would report to her because Addison would be an attending OBGYN/perinatal surgeon in addition to being an attending neonatal surgeon. While she was on the show, Addison was the Chief of OBGYN and neonatal surgery, which meant that if Arizona had any neonatal surgical cases, they'd be deferred to Addison and Fields would've reported to her as Addison would've been in charge of all facets of OBGYN, including perinatology.
