CALL Divide call on trauma nights between the students such that you average no more frequently than q4 during your month. Be sure to get at least one full weekend off. We’d like you to be able to both have a life and also get to know a little about our city. The actual schedule is left up to the students to arrange. Be fair to each other. Carry the on-call pager and notify the junior resident on-call that you will be taking call with them that evening. The best opportunity to learn how to suture, splint, cast, and possibly do reductions as a medical student takes place on-call and in the ER/trauma bay. CONFERENCES Conference Schedules Three rules – Read assigned material before conference, if you are unsure, ask the junior resident on your service. – No scrubs in conference, dress appropriately. – Be on time.
