About Core Schedule

Core Schedule was created in 2009 by Dr. Stephen C. Pool, an Emergency Room physician and programmer who was tired of multiple outdated and conflicting excel schedules in his own department. He designed Core Schedule to be efficient, easy to use, transparent, and accessible. Since its creation Core Schedule has been adopted by major hospitals and small clinics in the United States, New Zealand, and Australia. We currently service whole hospital networks, emergency departments, ICUs, nursing departments, walk-in clinics, “flying doctor” rescue services, and much more. We customize our program to suit the needs of every customer, from clinics of less than ten employees to complex networks with thousands of staff.
