Residents are learners FIRST..

Well here is something which is close to my heart, i have always felt that learning should be the top priorty for a resident and his working hours should be adjusted according to this.
Same is reflected in a new Compact Between Resident Physicians and Their Teachers, which articulates the principles underlying the education of U.S. residents, was announced by the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) in November-2005.

The AAMC initiated the development of the compact to re-focus attention on the primary goal of U.S. residency training-physician education-following the ACGME's imposition of restrictions on resident duty hours in 2003. The compact, which will be sent to all residency programs directors and their institutional sponsors this month, articulates the three core tenets of graduate medical education:

  • Residents are, first and foremost, learners
  • Residents must learn in clinical settings that embody the highest standards of medical practice and patient safety
  • Residents' well being must be a high priority.
