Resident Call Schedule
First-year residents do not participate in call. Instead, they receive extensive training in order to prepare for independent call the following year through introductory didactic lectures and assisting the on-call attending on weekends/holidays on a rotational basis. Weekend inpatient rotation with a supervising radiologist occurs approximately every six weeks (Saturday & Sunday, 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.).
Night Float is a four-week rotation, completed during the second and third years of residency. The rotation alternates one week of night-time ED coverage (night float) with one week of research (total of two weeks night float and two weeks research per rotation). Residents participate in a total of four Night Float/Research rotations. Night Float begins at 9:00 p.m. and concludes at 8:00 a.m., Sunday through Friday. In-house attending supervision is provided until midnight. Residents are free from daytime responsibilities during their night float weeks. The dedicated, supervised, research rotation occurs during regular hours, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

VIR Pager Call: Residents participate in pager call from home for emergent vascular and interventional cases while rotating on the Vascular and Interventional Radiology service. Two residents are assigned to the Vascular and Interventional Radiology service each four-week rotation and alternate pager call from home on a weekly basis. Occurring during the second, third and fourth years of training, residents participate in approximately eight weeks of pager call from home during the course of training. All call is supervised by an attending radiologist and requires the physical presence of the attending radiologist assigned to the service during regular working hours or on call for that subspecialty after hours.
