Call responsibilities:

Fellows share home call evenly between the four fellows for nights and weekends.  Responsibilities include taking phone calls from families, our home monitoring program patients, the emergency department or inpatient services. 

In-house cardiac intensive care call is encouraged during cardiac intensive care service months in order to gain the valuable experience of managing post operative patients with increased autonomy.  Our Cardiac Intensivists take in-house call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and are available for supervision and mentorship.
