Anyone have an idea of typical hours of work done by typical GI vs cards fellow vs. IM resident? Though there's 80 hr workrule, I think many of residents I've worked work probably do at around 90hr/wk. for current fellows, how does the time u spend as fellow differ from ur time as a resident?

It varies from program to program and in eahc department. But in general, the amount of hours increase pretty significantly (work hours do not apply in fellowship) during the first year, but then taper back during the 2nd and 3rd yrs fo fellowship. But it varies. At ym medical school, the cards fellows worked about the same as housestaff, but the gi fellows were in first and out last during their first yr; where as here for residency, both are more balanced- cards works a bit more, gi about the same id imagine, as the PGY1s, and we stay pretty close to wrkhrs depending on the rotation.
