It is after 3AM in CA now and I will likely not sleep today. I have been exercising the idea of emulating residency for some duration during this summer - maybe the entire summer. Could some of the residents describe their average day in detail? Ideally, it should include a complete schedule of a typical weekday as well as the weekends. Incorporation of exercise and even sexual habits, and how physically tiring residency is, would be helpful. It seems that the worst case scenarios are working 30 continuous hours. Essentially, that's what I am doing right now, except that I spent most of my day today writing a motion for my fourth ticket within the last year. So I was sitting most of the time, or pacing. Is residency very challenging and tiring physically? Are you standing up most of the time? What supplements, energy drinks, or pills (No Doz, etc) do you use when things get especially tough? I am particularly interested in schedules of neurosurgery residencies or residencies that are similarly demanding. I couldn't find a separate sub-forum for residents, so I am assuming this is the right place to post my question.
