Schedule - Ophthalmology at MedStar Washington

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 Education committee.
