  2. Call back: back up call for the residents in-house. If the hospital gets busy and the ICU resident feels additional help is needed, the call back resident is called in. This is done only in 2nd and 3rd years.
  3. Variable: occurs as the jeopardy resident; if you are jeopardized, you are called in to cover the duties of another resident who is out for personal reasons or emergencies. You are given 24-hour advance notice, and your personal clinics are not cancelled.
