Coming next month in JACS, and online now: Latest results from the “FIRST” Trial

Anthony D. Yang, MD, MS, FACS; Jeanette W. Chung, PhD; Allison R. Dahlke, MPH; and colleagues present the latest results from the Flexibility in Duty Hour Requirements for Surgical Trainees (FIRST) Trial in the February issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS). As postgraduate year level increased, residents had increasing concerns about patient care and resident education/training under standard duty hour policies, but had decreasing concerns about well-being under flexible policies. When given the choice between training under standard or flexible duty hour policies, only 14 percent of surgical residents expressed a preference for standard policies.
