The article discusses the implications of a new rule which limits the shift work of first-year medical residents in the U.S. to 16 hours. The rule, written by the Accreditation Committee for Graduate Medical Education, aims to improve patient safety and provide a better training environment for new physicians. The new rule has forced many changes in hospitals, such as the hiring of hospitalists to fill the gap. Residents are also concerned that some training programs may need to be extended.
