What is the schedule for the hospitalists?

A lot of hospitalist groups work 7 shifts on and 7 shifts off.  We do not do that. Our physicians will work 4-5 days in a row followed by 3-4 days off. They are required to work some nights (if hired for day shifts) and at least two weekends out of the month. We also have a call back-up schedule.

For FT, they are required to work a minimum of 12 shifts a month.

Shifts are:
1p-11p (admits patients)
