On Call Schedule
The Clinical Neurophysiology Trainees do not have in-house call, except for approximately 2-3 nights per year when they are covering residents in the basic program, so that these Trainees may attending their annual retreat or training examination. Clinical Neurophysiology Trainees take at-home night call, covering the Epilepsy Service, with attending backup-up, for a maximum of 2 weekends per month when on that rotation. At-home call is shared with the other CNP fellow(s) on a non-Epilepsy rotation, who covers for 7 days per month.
- The adult and pediatric epilepsy staff discussed the issue of weekend call. It was agreed that in keeping with other programs, the MCW program would now require fellows on the EEG rotation to come in and round on some weekends during the months they are covering the epilepsy monitoring units, whether at Children's Hospital or Froedtert Hospital. A maximum of 2 weekends a month will be allotted for this.
- Starting July 2010, in the Froedtert rotation, the fellow who comes in to round during those weekends will also be on "first-call" for in-house STAT EEG interpretation. The EEG rotating fellow will not be placed on the weeknight call pool. The non-EEG fellow sharing the call pool will be required to go on in-home call for 7 days a month, divided into two blocks of 4 weeknights and one weekend.
