Call Schedule

- If you need to utilize the call schedule contact the designated chief resident for your assigned ED and send an email to Jeremy Brenneman with Drs. Ballester and Dupre included in carbon copy.

- All call shifts, with the exception of Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday as detailed below, will be 24 hours covering day, transition, and night shifts at MVH, KMC, DCH, and WPMC. We are not responsible for covering remote sites (ie MVS, Sycamore) or off-service residents.

- US/KMC: R1s on ultrasound will take call Mondays (Sunday overnight, Monday morning and transition), Wednesdays, and Fridays for those 2 weeks. If they get called in Monday they will be ineligible for call on Wednesday; likewise with Wednesday and Friday. During the two weeks at Kettering they will work 7 shifts instead of 9 which they have traditionally worked and take two 24 hr call shifts which will be scheduled by the Kettering chief. If those call shifts are not required that block they will work the typical 9 shifts.

- Hand/Neuro ICU: R2s on both their Hand and Neuro ICU rotations will take a total of two 24 hr call shifts Sundays (day and transition shifts) since they have no clinical responsibilities over the weekend on either service. Each resident will be able to choose either both Neuro ICU weekends, both Hand weekends, or one of each. During blocks where there are two residents they can determine between themselves how this will be divided.

- Teaching: R3s on Teaching block will take 24 hr call shift on two Saturdays. As with Hand/Neuro ICU, they will be able to choose which weekends, and on blocks where there are two residents they can determine between themselves how to split their shifts.

- US/Soin: R3s on ultrasound will take 24 hr call Tuesdays (transition and night shifts only) and Thursdays for those two weeks. Similar to R1s, if they are called in on Tuesday they will be ineligible for call on Thursday. Given the fixed schedule during the two weeks at Soin, R3s will be on call as needed on Mondays (day and transition shifts only) instead of working in the ED. If they are not needed they will work in the ED as scheduled.

- Days that are not covered by an off-service resident based on the calendar below will be covered by residents on ED blocks. For academic year 2019-2020 this will total 78 days therefore each resident will take one or two 24 hour call shifts throughout the year.


Special Circumstances

- Residents who have to utilize the call schedule will be responsible for making up that shift, either during that rotation or during their next ED block, which will be coordinated by the designated chief resident for that ED.

- Residents on ED blocks who are called in will obtain shift credit, either during that rotation or during their next ED block, which will be coordinated by the designated chief resident for that ED. If possible the resident who utilized the call schedule will work that additional shift.

- If two residents utilize the call schedule in the same 24 hour period the chief resident for that ED will be responsible for finding coverage.

- Not being reachable or capable of working a shift on your call day will come with the same repercussions as missing any other scheduled shift.
