Baby Beeper Program

UW Family Medicine Residency FAQ on the Baby Beeper Program >>


The FMIG Baby Beeper Program provides first and second year medical students the opportunity to shadow family physicians and residents as they care for and deliver laboring mothers.

Students sign up to take a pager one week at a time. This year we have only one pager per week tied to UW Family Medicine Residency Program. Students are invited to go into the hospital to shadow the delivery process.

To participate in this program you must complete our online orientation

Important Family Medicine Residency Information

Picking-up/Returning Your Pager
Pager should be picked up between Noon and 5PM on Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday) in the Family Medicine Student Office in E-304 of the Health Sciences Building. Students sign up to carry the pager when the quarterly email is sent out to the family medicine listserv (sign up here!). Please note that we can only allow 1 student per week, as we have only 1 pager/1 site (UWMC).
