Intra-Departmental Compensation for Late Work

When residents work in the main operating rooms and cannot be relieved by the night shift team; they are compensated for this late clinical work, known as ECC (Evening Clinical Commitment). Beginning CA1 year, residents are scheduled to work ECC 3-4 times per month while rotating through the HUP OR's. When scheduled for ECC, residents stay beyond 5:30 pm (until 8:30 pm at the latest) to help finish cases that run late. Extra ECC volunteers may also be recruited on days when there are a large number of cases still going at 5:30 pm.

The department currently compensates residents at $100/hr for ECC, and residents are free to exchange, give up, or take other residents' ECC.

The department maintains strict compliance with all ACGME work hour regulations, including any time spent working ECC.
