Within debates and discussions about burnout in residents and fellows, the acceptance of an 80-hour work week limit is often taken as a given. But what role do you think the hours trainees work does or doesn't play in burnout? Would less intense training over a longer timeframe help? In the UK for instance, training is limited to 48 hours per week (averaged over 6 months) and includes 28 days of annual leave. That said, post-graduate training takes longer: 5 years to become a primary care physician and 9 years to become a cardiologist. At the same time, burnout is increasingly a concern within the UK as well.
