Derek said:Just curious about what those of you already in a program and others of you going into EM prefer for your shift schedule.
corpsmanUP said:But the bottom line for me is that I can always do something before or after work....hit the gym, take the kids to school or pick them up...etc...if I have these short shifts. So literally no day is a day where I would not be likely to exercise. But 12 hour shifts to me are just brutal...and even if you only do 17 of them, I believe those 17 days are always going to be non-exercising and non family days. I honestly think the PD's should just step in and ban 12 hour shifts in residency. Its not good for anyone to work 12 hour days in the ED.
