Night Float

PGY 2 and PGY 3 neurology residents cover NYU Langone Brooklyn Hospital through a night float (NF) system. One resident (either a PGY2 or 3) and one Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant cover Neurology Ward, Stroke, and consultation service including Neuro-ICU consults at night. The NF resident does overnight in-house call from Saturday night through Thursday night with Friday being a 24 hour traditional call.

Night float rotations begin at 7:00 PM and end at 7:00 AM the next morning.

In total, PGY 2s have approximately 8 weeks of NF, and PGY 3s have approximately 6 weeks of NF per year.

Call rooms are equipped with computers with the ability to place orders and view films. There is also access to high speed internet, TV, bed, desk, and mini-refrigerator.
