Nighttime resident supervision and education: results of a national survey of internal medicine residency program directors
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Over the past several years, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has issued new restrictions on resident duty hours while calling for increased supervision to ensure patient safety. To meet these requirements, some hospitals have hired overnight in-house hospitalist physicians, also called nocturnists, while others have continued a traditional model wherein a resident in-house can access a supervisor at home by phone as needed. This study examines the current state of internal medicine resident supervision and teaching at night.
