    Have any other interns noticed that the gender of your back-up affects how much sleep you get? I do not want to start any kind of gender wars because I think there's possibly some very good reasons for it, but I just find the guys whipping through admissions much more quickly, and hence I get a little sleep....(My goal btw is definitely to do the best possible work-up etc. for the patient, just not to waste time chatting with each other and other staff about unrelated issues, grilling nurses before allowing them to give a laxative, duplicating work etc.) Anyone else noticed similar trends? Have advice?

    I didn't notice the trend -- but I found that some docs (male or female) are insecure about their skills, and consequently, they take a lot longer.
