*The overnight on-call team consists of one PGY-1 on night shift, one upper level on overnight call, and one PGY-2 on night shift. A PGY-3 is in house covering the PICU and available for further support as needed. An additional PGY-1 takes “short call” from 5:00 until 10:00 p.m. each weeknight. The “short call” role is to field phone calls from outpatients after hours and to support the on-call team as necessary. Inpatient PGY-1 call is seven night shifts for each ward rotation.
