Policy for Rotating Residents

Pediatric In-patient Rotation Policy for Rotating Residents (doesn’t include PICU & ED)

  • The Department of Medical Education at Akron Children’s Hospital’s philosophy is to treat residents from other institutions, rotating on our Pediatric in-patient teams the same we treat our pediatric residents.  The same privileges and responsibilities apply equally to both groups.
  • The general pediatric residents and all rotating residents when doing an in-patient Pediatric rotation at Akron Children’s Hospital must abide by the following:
    • No vacation/CME/USMLE or COMLEX tests to be taken during the rotation.
    • No personal days off
    • Manage similar number of patients.
    • May be required to work night shifts as scheduled including the possibility of one week of nights (Sunday-Friday)
    • Required to attend didactic Pediatric Conferences
  • Rotating residents will NOT be scheduled on the in-patient, non-intensive care teams in July. December, and June (blocks 1, 7, 13).

    • Each visiting program will define whether their residents will be gone a full day or a half day on Wednesday prior to the start of the rotation.
    • The pediatric chief residents will note each program’s Wednesday schedule on the monthly call schedule, however rotating residents are still responsible for notifying their senior resident when they will be gone for clinic.
