Impact of duty-hour restriction on resident inpatient teaching.

Mazotti LA, Vidyarthi AR, Wachter RM, et al. Journal of Hospital Medicine. 2009;4.

After the implementation of duty hours regulations, approximately one-quarter of internal medicine residents reported spending less time teaching. Interestingly, residents who taught less were also less likely to report emotional exhaustion, and were more likely to report satisfaction with the quality of care they provided.
