Duty Hours

All house staff are required to accurately record their duty hours in New Innovations. Hours should be logged weekly.

Failure to record duty hours in New Innovations may result in disciplinary action including suspension from the residency or termination from the residency program. Note that GME locks duty hour entry on the tenth of every month. After the schedule is locked, back entry is not allowed .

With respect to duty hours both on-site and off-site, all house staff must comply with the rules of the Department to which they are assigned and must also comply with any applicable ACGME, State or Federal Regulations setting limitations on duty hours. Professional activities in your off-time hours should be arranged so as not to interfere with your house officer obligations and your ability to benefit from your Graduate Medical Education Program.
