Surgeon’s Research Drove July 1 Change in Residents’ Hours
On July 1, a national policy change allowing hospital residents flexible duty hours will begin as a result of Dr. Karl Bilimoria’s landmark NEJM study showing flexibility is safer for patients and better trains new doctors.
Bilimoria is director of the Surgical Outcomes and Quality Improvement Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a Northwestern Medicine physician.
“The policy change will allow residents to stay to care for critically ill patients or finish surgeries instead of having to leave when their duty-hour clock was up,” said Bilimoria. “They can stay to stabilize a patient as long it’s for the care of a single patient, and if it’s the resident’s own decision.”
