Analyzing data from a prior trial of flexible versus traditional duty hours, this study found that female residents perceived patient safety as worse than male residents. Changes in duty hours had mixed effects on these self-reported outcomes and seemed to exacerbate gender differences. The authors recommend further study to determine how to improve learning for trainees regardless of gender.
