Killer shifts for trainee doctors


IN recent months, the working conditions and long wait for posting for the young houseman have been highlighted in the newspapers.

In my opinion, the 12-hour shift that is required during the housemanship is a major cause of their stress and probably the main reason why up to 20% of newly-graduated doctors quit.
