Toxicology Rotation at Stroger Cook County Hospital
The EM-3 is part of the Toxicon consortium team consisting of toxicologists based at Stroger Cook County and UIC hospitals. The rotation consists of journal clubs on Monday mornings at the Illinois Poison Contol Center. Tuesday thru Friday mornings, the resident participates in rounds at UIC and Stroger.
There are usually 3-4 short calls which means you will carry the pager until 5pm. You are a consultant on this service and unless the call is from UIC or Stroger, the patients do not need to be seen. There are also 4-5 long calls which are home calls from 5pm until rounds the next day.
