Residency Rules
A cultural shift is afoot as teaching hospitals adjust to the 80-hour workweek for residents
 

In the years to come, there will doubtless be a special place in medical history for the "in-between" residents, for those who experienced both the final days of the century-old tradition of working grueling 36-hour shifts and the beginning of the modern era of 80-hour workweeks.

Chris Sonnenday, a fourth-year resident in general surgery, will be among those telling war stories. He finished the first three years of his residency in 2000, followed up with a three-year research fellowship, and exchanged his lab coat for green scrubs again on July 1.


Duty hours are fewer now, but general surgery resident Chris Sonnenday says he's not rejoicing.
