**Emergency Radiology (UAMS): This rotation is the Emergency Radiology rotation for Upper Level residents (R2-4), who read emergent cases from the ED at UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Little Rock, Arkansas Children’s Northwest, and the VA. Residents also work from 2-10 pm, staffing out cases with attending radiologists and providing a transition of care to oncoming night float residents.

Night Float: The night float rotation is a 1-2 week rotation that runs from Sunday- Friday. The Sunday shift is 8 pm- 7am while Monday-Friday is 10 pm- 7 am.
