Medical Residents Can Now Work 28-Hour Shifts - But Is it a Good Thing?

On March 10, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Board approved a requirement that will allow first-year medical resident interns to work up to 28-hour shifts.

Each intern can work a 24-hour shift, then they're granted a four-hour period to inform other doctors and residents about their patients' status.

The approved changes will go into effect July 1 in order to align with the 2017–2018 academic school year in teaching hospitals.
