During the 2nd year, residents will continue to rotate through the subspecialty clinics every three weeks and can choose one elective in either education (medical student teaching), research or other clinic.
Second-year residents begin taking long call (night float). Call responsibilities occur in blocks of 6 nights, plus occasional weekends, dispersed throughout the year. The number of weeks the resident will spend on call during the second year varies according to schedule requirements.
