The service component (staffing) is considered a longitudinal rotation during the PGY1 year. Staffing provides the resident with the opportunity to identify the unique challenges present while working as an independent practitioner and apply knowledge gained during learning experiences. The resident is required to work one weekend (one Saturday and one Sunday) every 3 weeks beginning in August through June of the residency year. One Winter Holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day) and one Summer Holiday (Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July) are also required as part of the service component. The resident is also obligated to work one evening shift (1700 – 2100) every third week.
