UNC-WakeBrook Call

Students will take emergency call at UNC-WakeBrook in its Crisis and Assessment Services unit, located on-site. See details below.

Students assigned to UNC-WakeBrook will get emergency psychiatry experience in the WakeBrook Crisis and Assessment Services (CAS) unit.  There they will see patients presenting emergently as well as in an observation/crisis stabilization setting.  Call experiences. Call will consist of working one weeknight and one weekend day in CAS. During weeknights students will work in CAS from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and on the weekend from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. On weeknights, students will report to CAS and inform staff that they are on call. Students will then pair with either a clinician or the psychologist to see new patients coming in for evaluation. On weekends, students are to meet the on-call team at the morning checkout meeting in building 107, room 107. Students will likely pair with the resident (moonlighter) on call that day. The resident will typically round on inpatients and residential patients being discharged, and then proceed to CAS for the remainder of the day. They will also be involved in floor calls for the campus. It is recommended that students spend the bulk of their time on call in CAS, as time on call is geared to provide an emergency psychiatry experience. As such, students may find it more productive to begin working in CAS alongside clinicians while the resident rounds on inpatients, then meet up with them later.
