Resident On-Call Schedule

All residents participate in the on-call schedule.  They cover UF Health Shands Hospitals, UF Health Shands Pediatric Hospital, and the  Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Weekly Schedule In-House Night Float Call

During this time residents are caring for inpatients, evaluating inpatient and ER consults, and participating in emergency operative cases.
