First and second-year residents cover emergency night call thirty
nights per resident per year. Third-year residents are on
stand-by call. An ophthalmology resident is on duty at MedStar
Washington Hospital Center to handle calls until 8:00 p.m.
weeknights; thereafter, calls are taken from home by pager.
Depending on the service, severity and volume of cases, calls at
all facilities are managed via pager.
All resident schedules are drawn up by the chief residents and
are approved by the program director and by the Training and
