The Department of Radiology uses a two-tier call system. The first call goes to lower level residents, and the second goes to upper level residents.
Begins after 6 months of training. Currently a modified float system - 12 shifts during weekdays done in two-week shifts that swap day/night about mid-month. Non-float residents in first call pool split the weekends/holidays in 24-hour shifts. Morning readout is at 7 a.m.; evening readout is at about 5-6 p.m.. First call resident covers all emergent CT, plain film, fluoroscopy and nuclear medicine studies.
Rotating 24-hour shifts in house. Resident covers ultrasound (sonographer back-up available if necessary), VIR, MRI and any questions from first call resident.
Float system Monday-Friday / 24-hour shifts Saturday and Sunday
Same amount of time on call split up q5 on weekdays and q5 entire weekends. Weekdays usually see one or two interventional procedures, MRI's or US's per call. Weekend days usually see two to three interventional procedures, 3-4 MRI and 2-3 ultrasounds per day.
