Residents are allowed, within approved scheduling parameters, to select the subspecialty areas they wish to rotate through during their 4th year of residency. These are known as "mini fellowships."
Residents continue to take short call in their 4th year, and, like the 3rd-year residents, will be responsible for reading more complex imaging studies as well as performing interventional procedures. Call responsibilities will total approximately 3-4 weeks.
