General Medicine Floors
Admissions are accepted daily or every other day depending on inpatient team, with a max of five admissions per 24hr period. Residents and interns hours are from 7am to 5 -6pm each day depending on the work load.
Intensive Care and Cardiac Care Units
The Medical ICU is staffed by day and night teams of residents. They take 12 hour shifts 6 days of the week. Each side of the ICU is staffed by 1 upper level resident and 2 interns. The night shift is also similarly staffed. The Cardiac ICU is a day rotation only staffed by 1 upper level resident and 1 intern. Night coverage is staffed by a "moonlighter" from the Department of Medicine. This schedule for both the MICU and CCU enables our program to be adherent to the newest ACGME duty hours rules.
One to two overnight calls per month may occur during electives for coverage issues.
