Sure we’re a busy service, but I’ve found a lot of freedom in our call schedule. I love being able to be home with my wife, explore southern California and our surrounding areas. We didn’t know much about this area before my fellowship, and some of our favorite places are in Lake Tahoe, Redlands and Riverside. Great restaurants and areas to explore!
Our schedule allows for work/life balance and the ability to have a decent amount of free time, to prioritize needs (family, studying, research, teaching, etc.). Faculty treats you with respect, and gives you the opportunity to make decisions, lead residents & students, and grow into more of an independent practice.
A Deeper Glimpse
We’re grateful for an evenly split call schedule, where call ends up being 1-2 weekends a month and 1-2 days a week. Call is split between the 2 fellows & the PGY3 that is on our service (at LLUH). When you’re not on call you are not expected to be available or present. Your protected time is 100% protected.
