asunshione, so during ward month do you have just one day off for the whole week or do you have the weekend and a weekday off as well?

1 day off/week. Seniors get weekend priority. I think this is true for most programs. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I think in pretty much any specialty, ward months will give you one day off total... either a weekend or week day. Ward means inpatient and that means someone has to be in the hospital at all times to cover those patients. If you're taking off every weekend, who would be covering your patients?? My husband is a medicine resident and their schedule kind of sucks on inpatient months...

Lyn2006, thanks for clarifying. How many months are usually ward months?
