Residency schedule, burnout and patient care among first-year residents.

Block L, Wu AW, Feldman L, et al. Postgrad Med J. 2013;89(1055):495-500.

Signs of burnout and fatigue were most often associated with being on a rotation that included shifts longer than 24 hours, in this survey of intern physicians at three internal medicine residency programs. The survey was performed immediately prior to implementing the 2011 duty hour restrictions, limiting intern shifts to 16 hours.
