Night And Weekend Call

Residents take call from home throughout their child psychiatry training. While on call, residents cover the inpatient services at CAPS and Children's Hospital, providing emergency psychiatric consultation in the emergency room of Children's Hospital as well as inpatient consultations. Residents cover new admissions to the CAPS inpatient unit on the weekend, while progress notes for inpatients are written by faculty on weekends. Residents receive supervision from their faculty attending back-up when on call. Residents take call from home weeknights while another resident covers weekend call (Friday, Saturday, Sunday night).
