The 80-h Week

  • Larry D. Florman


The 80-h week has been with us since 2003 and in some form applies to medical students, residents, and fellows. Since the institution of the rules, they have had several changes, each change being a bit more stringent. The fact is that we must abide by them or risk de-accreditation of training programs. The rules are very explicit and do not leave much question as to interpretation.
