Residency Schedule


We employ a 4+2 block schedule for the duration of our residents’ training. Our General Medicine ward teams are populated via an on-call system with a night float resident that is designed to protect attendance at morning report, educational conferences, and teaching sessions led by clinical faculty.

“Autonomy is like being invited to a party: you want to be invited, but you don’t want to go. Autonomy makes you take responsibility and that makes you uncomfortable. When you have autonomy, you have to put in effort, solve the problem and make the decision. This is how you grow with call.”
