Effects of work hour reduction on residents' lives: a systematic review.

Fletcher KE, Underwood W, Davis SQ, et al. JAMA. 2005;294.

The authors review the literature on systems changes implemented following the ACGME work hour limits for residents. They found that the research to date does not clearly indicate how such changes have affected residents' education and call for more rigorous study in this area.
