    80-hour workweek and moonlighting?

    Advertisements



    Since, according to another post, ACGME accreditation requires limiting the residency workweek to 80 hours, do most teaching hospitals take advantage of this and require a full 80-hour workweek? If so, how can anyone even think about moonlighting? Isn't there homework all the time?

    Not all

    Not all require an 80 hour workweek. Moonlighting time is INCLUDED in the 80 hour workweek. So if you do 70 hours for the program you can do only 10 hours of moonlighting. I think that the 80 hour workweek is an average over a 4 week period. Once you are past the intern year, you should get a fair amount of elective time where you work 40 hours a week. That should present a lot of moonlighting opportunity. G
