Duty Hours

Vidant Medical Center and the Brody School of Medicine take physician fatigue and patient safety very seriously. Programs and learners are expected to comply with Duty Hour guidelines as required by each program and the ACGME. The ACGME minimum requirements for duty hours may be found at www.acgme.org/acWebsite/dutyHours/dh_Lang703.pdf and additional information at www.acgme.org/acWebsite/dutyHours/dh_faqs.pdf. Our institution’s Duty Hour policies may be found in the policy section of this website.  Several programs have more restrictive guidelines.  Please check with your program coordinator or program director for your program’s policy.

Your program will be monitoring duty hour compliance as well as resident fatigue, and will present their findings to the GME Committee on a regular basis. In addition, the GME Office will intermittently monitor the hours of all residents and fellows. If you have a concern about the hours you or a co-resident work, please contact your program director or you may contact the GME Office at 847-4268.
