Frequently Asked Questions

When does the residency year begin?

The last week of June, including a one-week hospital orientation for new residents.

What is the service/staffing requirement?

Currently, every other weekend which includes both clinical services (consultation service) and pharmacy staffing. With the possible expansion to a third resident for 2022-2023, there is consideration of moving towards a slightly different staffing model.  However, decisions are not yet finalized.

Each resident will take approximately five weeks of call (one week in the fall and four in the spring) with a preceptor for back-up support. These weeks will align with your in-hospital service requirement.
