Effects of a night-team system on resident sleep and work hours.

Chua K-P, Gordon MB, Sectish T, et al. Pediatrics. 2011;128:1142-7.

In response to the 2011 duty hour regulations, many residency programs are shifting toward night-team systems where residents work defined night shifts rather than traditional overnight call. This study from a pediatrics residency program found that although residents worked fewer hours per day under the night-team system, they also slept less.
