Do you think the ACGME work hour recommendations are strong enough?

This week, the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) released resident work hour recommendations. If you haven't seen them, you can check them out here. What do you think of the recommendations - right on the money? or not enough?

If you want to read AMSA's response to the recommendations, click here. Basically, AMSA thinks that they are a good step toward establishing evidence-based work hour scheduling for resident physicians HOWEVER, they would be stronger if the 16-hour shift applied to all residents. AMSA also hopes that the ACGME continues to monitor, enforce and update work hour regulations so that U.S. medical schools can maintain the highest standards of learning and self-care.
