Resident Responsibilities

Call responsibilities are for emergency room and inpatient consults, as well as, inpatient Otolaryngology patients. Residents may take call from home at the discretion of the Program Director. Typically, call schedules are maintained at every fourth night. Our program is compliant with current ACGME requirements for resident work hours.

Three weeks of vacation are provided per year. An additional five days of CME/education time may be approved at the Residency Director’s discretion.

More detailed information on the policies and benefits for all residents is available on the Penn State Hershey Graduate Medical Education web site.
