Call Schedule

Having 5 Ward teams consisting of 1 resident, 2-3 interns, and 3rd and 4th year medical students, our admission call is on a 5 day rotation. Call is split over two days - a short call day (7:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.) and a long call day (11:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.). The float team consisting of one resident and one intern (responsible for cross-coverage) admits patients until 7:00 a.m., when the short call team takes over. The ward team intern is scheduled for float approximately every 8th-12th night while on the wards service.

Day 1 Short Call
Day 2 No Call
Day 3 Long Call
Day 4 No Call
Day 5 No Call* (Float Call)*

*At 8:00 p.m. one of the interns (or 4th year med students) on your team (after receiving the day off) comes in to admit patients with the float resident until 7:00 a.m., at which time the remainder of your team joins you for short call, and the cycle repeats.


One to two half-days per week all three years, except when on Float or ER rotations, are spent at the Stanton Road Clinic.
