Call Schedule | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

On the General Medicine wards, our teams have a resident and one to two interns.  The maximum of admissions to the call team is 10 new patients to the service cap of 14 patients, whichever comes first. Call is every 4th day. No patients are admitted by the post-call team. The "pre-call" team may admit one new patient and the "sister team" (team that is 2 days from long call) may admit two new patients. At 9 p.m. the on-call senior resident goes home and a night float senior resident covers from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. This resident is responsible for assisting with overnight admissions.

In the MICU, our team has one senior resident (day/night) and four to five interns. The senior resident does 2 weeks of MICU days (no overnight call) and then 2 weeks of night float. Call for interns is every fourth or fifth day. The Senior is responsible for overnight admissions to the MICU and supervising the Night float intern.
