Topic: Have Resident Work Hour Restrictions Compromised Training - a Pediatrician’s Perspective - by Merlin C. Lowe, MD, FAAP
With many recent changes in residency requirements, one must wonder how effective our residency training system is. Are residents still learning the required information to perform well? Is the new system just as good as the old but in a "kinder" way? Ultimately, time will tell; however, for successful residency programs ongoing evaluation and resulting changes will be needed to ensure that the newly imposed limitations don't end up sacrificing quality at the expense of meeting these new requirements.
