Rotations and Call Schedules

2015-2016 Rotation Schedule

During the first year of training, UCSD night call is taken in the hospital every third to fourth night and interns are released from service following call. During the second and third years, each resident takes approximately three 24-hour calls per month. There are also night float rotations during the second and third years. The UCSD chiefs (4th year residents) have approximately one in-house call per month and also rotate out-of-house call.

Except where noted otherwise, rotations on each level are of equitable length and take place at UCSD Medical Center (which includes the Hillcrest and Thornton Hospitals) or at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, and are a combination of in- and outpatient experiences. Most rotations include a Primary Care (continuity) Clinic.

Residents in obstetrics-gynecology are provided the opportunity to study in a variety of practice settings which include academic medicine and multi-specialty group practice. Varied patient care experience and academic training in these settings are beneficial in educating a well-rounded physician who is capable of choosing and performing well in a career in either of these environments.
