  • Holiday Calendar
    • Proposed starting January schedule on 12/30 or 12/31. February schedule would start early as well.
    • Would not dramatically change the schedule.
      • The outpatient residents in Dec would have 24th PM? and 25th off.
      • Outpatient residents in Jan would have 12/31 PM? and 1/1 off.
      • No cross coverage required.
      • Residents would have ~1.5 days off. This would not be any extra time, but starting early extends the benefit of Xmas eve vs NYE to both the odd and even month schedules.
      • Maintains parity including weekends
      • Dr. S had approved this idea
    • Most residents want more time off, 3 days or so if possible.
      • Will make additional proposals.
  • Cardiology Weekends.
    • Generally residents upset about this
    • Feel that residents are being used as cheap labor vs overworked PAs
    • Some residents have learned that cards PAs will no longer work weekends starting sometime this year.
  • Georgetown clinic
    • Asked for call schedule accommodation in advance b/c coming from clinic is extremely difficult
    • Main concern is that this is a Friday, may be unfair to others
    • Will plan on trying to accommodate in the future
    • Likely best bet will involve working with FM didactic schedule
