On-call Experience

What is Required

  • Acute medical on calls throughout the training
  • On-call rota would vary from one hospital to another – admission on calls and ward on call cover
  • Some University hospitals (and others are trying to adopt) have the provision to be out of on calls for 4 months during the programme to concentrate on more clinics
  • Wards are usually general medical though patients with endocrine/ diabetes issues may be preferentially transferred to these wards
