What is the typical call schedule?

First-year residents are on call every fourth night during inpatient floor rotations.

For second- and third-year residents, the call is three times a month only, again, while doing inpatient floor rotations.

Yes. At 9:00 p.m., an R-1 night float relieves the on-call doctors who will go home. There is one R-2/3 night float who start at 6:30 p.m. Residents take call overnight twice a month only while on inpatient floor rotations.

Many have gone on to fellowships including allergy, cardiology, pulmonary and critical care medicine, hematology/oncology, immunology and nephrology, among others. The others have entered practices in primary care and hospitalist positions.
