First year residents take no overnight call, but are responsible for two service days per month, which involve 3-4 hours on a weekend morning.
Night and weekend coverage for Emergency Department is shared by the twelve 2nd year residents. Additionally, the 2nd year residents provide in-house weekend day coverage ten times per year.
We utilize a night-float system for in-house call. 3rd and 4th year residents are each responsible for a total of five weeks over those two years. These senior residents are also each responsible for five Saturdays and five Sundays over the two years.
Vascular Interventional call is usually covered by the VIR fellows, with residents on backup call from home.
The in-house residents are always backed up by attendings and fellows, who are available for consultation via teleradiology.
