General Surgery Training Program: Resident Duty Hours

The Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Board of Directors approved institutional standards for resident duty hours in February 2003, to be implemented by July 2003. Here at UCLA we have taken this charge very seriously. Resident well-being has been a prioriy not only for the program director, but also for the Dean of Graduate Medical Education. The residents are asked to document work hours weekly on the Department of Surgery Intranet. Our residency remains in compliance with the ACGME work hour policy.
