In-house call is an important component of orthopedic surgery residency, with a significant portion of the postgraduate year (PGY)-2 and PGY-3 duties devoted to 24-h clinical shifts in the hospital. A majority of this time is spent attending to the needs of pre- and post-operative patients and responding to emergency department (ED) and inpatient consultations—activities that demand priority over nonclinical endeavors. However, there is occasionally time available for other pursuits such as research, study, sleep, and exercise.
