The call schedule gives fellows experience in the full range of urgent problems in pediatric cardiology and a focused experience in intensive cardiac care in the second and third years. Fellows take in-house call in the form of a night-float rotation, in 2-week blocks. The night-float fellow (7pm-6:30am), under the supervision of the inpatient cardiology attending, is responsible for overnight management of the cardiac inpatients on the Progressive Care Unit (7West) and for urgent consultations (in-house and from outside hospitals) and echocardiograms.
Cardiac ICU (CICU) call is separate from the night-float call system. CICU call is covered by second and third year fellows during their CICU rotation (3 months in the second year and 1 month in the third year), with a day/night float system and 24 hour call on the weekends.
