24/10/80 hour rules of ACGME

Some pigeons seem to be coming home to roost, however. I have just
returned from examining final year medical students for a nearby
facility. I was testing their ability to examine the abdomen. I failed
92%, and the other examiner in a parallel session failed 96%. So if they
enter the profession at the bottom unable to do a basic examination
safely, and go through an accelerated training program what sort of
standard will they be at when they leave if they are only working
part-time? I am no fan of the sort of hours we used to work (and, indeed
at UK Consultant level still seem to work) but there must be better
training available instead.

 Best wishes

Rowley

Dear Nick,

Fascinating and bizarre

And I thought we were in bad trouble with numbers, training and
responsibility!
