How does call work?
Call depends on your rotation. As an intern, there is no true call. It is mostly shifts that are designed to provide the most teaching. There is one week of night float per month on Pediatrics. PGY2 varies from 4-5 a month. PGY 3 varies between 1-2 a month in house call.
How does weekend call work?
On inpatient services our residents work on Friday night and Sunday morning, or work a 24-hour shift on Saturday. Periodically, residents on electives will take a weekend call, which allows the inpatient team residents to have “golden weekends” (no hospital responsibilities on Friday night, Saturday or Sunday).
