Call Responsibilities

Call Responsibilities
During their time at Beaumont, Royal Oak, the radiology residents will be exposed to various types of call outside of their normal workday duties, including emergency, night float, and weekends. Beaumont, Royal Oak is a Level 1 trauma center with one of the busiest Emergency Departments in the country, exposing the resident to a high volume of cases with complex pathology.
  • Residents will work with one of the staff ER radiologists, present 24 hours a day-7 days a week, allowing the resident to make decisions in a fast-paced environment while still having the immediate feedback of an on-site staff radiologist
  • ER call duties include weekday call from 5:00pm-9:00pm and weekend call from 4:00pm-9:00pm
    • ER call responsibility begins at the end of year one
  • Weekend daytime call begins in the second month of year 1 with approximately one shift per month from 8:00am-4:00pm consisting of chest and musculoskeletal plain films
  • Residents also undergo night float (9pm-7am) duties within the emergency department with 6-7 one-week blocks during the entire Residency
  • In the latter part of the R3 year, residents are excluded from all call responsibilities to allow for adequate time to prepare for the upcoming ABR Core examination

Moonlighting

Beaumont, Royal Oak has extensive opportunities to moonlight throughout the four years of training.  Both weekend and weekday shifts are available requiring coverage for potential contrast reactions in patient’s undergoing contrast enhanced imaging studies. Additional reading shifts are also available on the weekends and weekday evenings, providing excellent opportunities for additional experience.
