Medical Student Online Handbook Meals


Erlanger provides limited funding for some meals and snacks to residents and medical students.   Residents and medical students receive a meal swipe card to use as they check out at the registers in the Cafeteria up to the limits of the card.  You should not get food for anyone other than yourself -- not for another resident, medical student, family member, or friends.


The Erlanger Employee Cafeteria is open daily between 6:30 AM and 1 AM.  The hot food line is open from 6:30 AM until 9 AM, Monday through Friday, and from 6:30 AM until 9:30 AM on Saturday's and Sunday's.  It re-opens at 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM for lunch and from 4 PM until 6:30 PM for dinner.  The remainder of the time other facilities are available in the cafeteria:  a grill, salad bar, and vending machines all located inside the main cafeteria.


If a student or resident chooses to use the vending machines, he/she must provide personal money.


In the evenings, residents and medical students may get snacks or soft drinks from the Resident Lounge on East Wing 7.


The Dining Room Managers may be reached at ext #7428 regarding any problems with the cafeteria and its service.


Meals are provided for the hours during which you (residents and students) are actually on duty.   You should not carry out food from the hospital for yourself or for you families.  Violation of this rule could result in the elimination of this benefit.
