Residency programs scramble to adopt changes
from American Medical News
Residency programs nationwide worked fast to implement new Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education rules governing residency training that took effect July 1, 2011. The standards, approved by the ACGME in September 2010, call for a variety of changes. They include increased resident supervision, limiting first-year residents to 16-hour shifts, educating residents and faculty about sleep deprivation, and ensuring effective transfers of patient care.
