Resident/SRNA Rotations

First Day

If this is your first rotation at RUHS, please report to the GME Office at 7 am to register. The GME office will provide you with a badge and parking permit. Next, report to the Anesthesia Coordinator's Office (F2028) to submit completed paperwork and obtain scrub information. Be prepared for OR duties on your first scheduled shift


On your first day at RUHS, please park in employee parking lot. The GME office will issue you a parking permit and you will be able to park in the employee parking lot for the remainder of your rotation. If you park in physician or visitor parking with the parking permit you will receive a ticket.

Scheduling Requests

All scheduling issues need to be submitted in writing and discussed with Dr. Pasca, or if not available with other attending staff members. Any approved schedule change needs to be documented in writing and submitted to Dr. Pasca.


If you are unexpectedly unable to complete your assigned shift it is your responsibility to first try to find a replacement among your colleagues. If this is not possible, contact the attending on-call through the OR front desk at (951) 486-4572 or (951) 486-4595. Again, all schedule changes must be coordinated and approved with Dr. Pasca when possible.

Education Schedule

You are responsible to attend all educational activities during your scheduled shifts. Monthly educational schedules are posted on the corkboard outside the anesthesia secretary's office. The only exceptions to the mandatory attendance are Wednesday monthly exams, department meetings and resident meetings.

Case Assignments

Case assignments are made for the following day around 2:00pm. You are responsible for being prepared for each of your assigned case. The OR schedule with provider assignments is posted in a hanging bind in the Attending Office area. The schedule may change without notice; you are responsible to confirm assignments every morning and throughout the day.
