Duty Hours

Work hours are to be logged via MedHub daily. The Division of General Surgery is committed to ensuring full compliance with the resident duty hour policies set forth by the GME office. All fellows will have at least one full 24-hour period per week without clinical duties. Additionally, fellows’ work hours are to be limited to an average of less than or equal to 80 hours per week during each 4-week block beginning the first day of the month and for the entire month. Fellows’ schedules should ensure that all fellows have greater than 10 hours off between all shifts and clinical on-call duties must be compliant with the 24+4 hour requirement mandated by the GME office. Work hour violations can nearly always be anticipated, and it is the responsibility of the fellow to notify the Program Manager (PM), Anna Darelli-Anderson, and the Program Director (PD), Dr. Alexander Colonna, if there will be violations.

Fellows are responsible for organizing their schedules and ensuring that vacations and meetings are scheduled such that the above policy can be fulfilled. The schedule should incorporate the actual hours of clinical responsibility to facilitate timely departure from the hospital. Schedules are to be reviewed by the PD prior to publication. The PM and PD are to be notified in advance if conflicts arise that do not allow fellow coverage of clinical obligations as outlined above.
