Night Call/Weekend Call
Endocrinology fellows share night call evenly, one week at a time. This coincides with your week covering the Inpatient Hospital Endocrine Consult Service. Fellows take “first call,” with the attending taking “second call.” Both our fellows and attendings must always be available by beeper or home telephone.
On Saturday mornings when you are covering the Inpatient Hospital Endocrine Consult Service, you and the attending are responsible for making hospital rounds together on all existing endocrine patients. Evaluating and managing any new endocrine consults called in on Saturday morning will also be the responsibility of our fellows and attending. The fellow is off duty for the remainder of the weekend at 12 p.m. on Saturday. At that point, the attending takes first call the remainder of the weekend. Only the attending comes in on Sunday mornings.
When on “first call,” your responsibilities include:
- Answering phone calls from outpatients
- Answering phone calls from nursing staff, house staff or attending physicians regarding endocrine inpatients on the endocrine consult service
- Coming into the hospital to evaluate critically ill patients, if requested
