Frequently Asked Questions
What is the call schedule? We utilize a night float system thus eliminating the traditional call schedule. On the night float rotation, PGY 1-3 residents do 5 consecutive days of night float (Sunday-Thursday). The remaining residents only do weekend calls. PGY-1 residents take 14 hour Saturday and Saturday night call, whereas PGY 2-4 residents do 24 hour Friday/Saturday calls with Sunday 12 hour calls.
What is the patient population? There is a diverse patient population at NBIMC. Residents are involved in all aspects of patient care while they are in-house. Residents develop continuity of care with their patients in their resident weekly continuity clinic at the Women’s Health Center.
How do the residents interact with the attendings? Residents receive one-on-one teaching from the attending. As the residents are involved with all in-house patients, they speak and work directly with all the attendings.

When do you start to operate? As a PGY-1, basic cases such as D&C's, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures, endometrial ablations, minor urologic procedures, LEEP procedures, and other minor cases are done. PGY-1 residents are performing primary c-sections in the 2nd half of the year. PGY-1 residents also assist on major gynecology cases, including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic cases.
