Call frequency for senior residents ranges from 1-8 times/month, with more call during inpatient months and little or no call on outpatient months. For example, in the NICU, there are eight calls per month. During the PICU or Ward rotation, call generally averages four times/month. During an outpatient rotation, the resident may only be on call 1-2 times during the month.
Senior residents are immediately available to provide direct supervision to all interns. Pediatric hospitalist and Intensivists provide 24/7 coverage and most live within 10-15 minutes of the hospital.
