Hi Dr. Henderson! Thank you very much for your encouraging reply to my last post. I am in the process of investigating schools and post-bac programs. I do have a question for you, though...How many hours/week is a resident expected to work? As you know I have a family and I want to know what to expect down the road. Thanks! NJ Hopeful PS: Hope Jenny finds the Sidelines information useful. Congratulations and best wishes .
