Learn how to be a doctor in your spare time
According to BBC News, European rules preventing trainee doctors from working more than 48 hours a week have come into force. I recall routinely working more than twice that many hours as a resident. At some point, won’t these admittedly well-rested doctors be less competent physicians for having had so little training in terms of hours?
I remember when the surgical residents used to say that being on call every other night was a problem…because it meant you missed half the good cases.
