Researchers describe controversial study of surgeon training
Whether surgical trainees should be able to work long shifts is a matter of fierce debate, and the methods of a controversial study aimed at answering that question were outlined Wednesday in a top surgical journal. The results won't be available until February. In the meantime, critics of the study say it exposed doctors-in-training — known as residents — and their patients to unnecessary risks by extending work hours. But supporters say the study did not increase risk and will lead to policies backed by evidence.
