X. GENERAL PROGRAM POLICIES

NO SHOW FOR DUTY POLICY

Residents are expected to report on time for all assigned duty, including daytime clinical rotations, didactics, call, and night float. If a resident does not report for duty, the attending, chief resident, resident on duty who is awaiting signout, assistant residency director, program director, or other appropriate responsible party will attempt to reach the missing resident by:

  1. Pager
  2. Home or other primary contact phone number
  3. Emergency contact number.

If the resident has not been located within 1-2 hours using the measures above, and any other options appropriate to the circumstance, the police will be notified and asked to go to the resident's home to do a welfare check. The decision to call the police should be made in consultation with the program director, assistant residency director for the site, and/or chief resident at the site, if at all possible.

All residents are required to provide primary and emergency contact information, as well as their home address, to the Residency Office, and to update this information immediately with any change.

Lack of timely attendance for duty is a serious professionalism issue and is cause for disciplinary action.
