Report Call for staff neurologists in Other Specialty Residencies Posted January 25 I have a couple of resident colleagues who just recently began community neurology (BC, ON, QC). The general tone of call is 1 week of home call per month block. Most times it's not super busy, but of course being on call takes its toll whether you're receiving questions/consults or not. Many community centers will now do tPA (if they have CT) and transfer patients for EVT. So, you generally cover acute stroke as well. Conversely, community hospitals that do have neurologists available by day, but whose facilities are within the catchment area of tertiary care centres will often just call the residents on call at said tertiary care centre with their questions. In which case, the day neurologists that cover aren't bothered overnight. It really depends on where you're located.
