A Typical Day as a General Surgery Resident

A Typical Day as an Internal Medicine Resident


We strictly adhere to ACGME and New York State duty hour regulations, including having at least one day off per week (defined as Sunday through Saturday), and working fewer than 80 hours per week, averaged over four weeks. While rare, whenever a resident is approaching the limit of 80 hours per week over four weeks, they are encouraged to speak up in order to be appropriately released from duties, and are never penalized.
