SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Just curious what peoples' thoughts are on this subject. Here at my school, the GS program has (finally) mandated that residents get one day off a week, every week. Ours is known as a pretty malignant program, though. What have your schools been doing? And what do you see (without getting too sensational) as the long term effects of cutting GS work hours down to an 80-hour work week?
