Why do doctors work such long hours?
I'm referring to the medical internist that works 24-hour shifts or more. Are there any doctors here? Any links to any references on the web?
My guess is it is just part of the culture of the doctor profession. If you don't work the long hours, your peers won't accept you.
There is a minimum requirement of hours that residents are required to perform. The medical community, the state, and federal regulations decide how many hours of certain procedures or roles that residents need.
I think it's because they want to get it right. They have to practice. :-)
This isn't Funny! Working long shifts is not responsible behavior on their part. After so many hours without rest their judgment is impaired and mistakes are more likely to happen. They are educated individuals and know this, so why do they continue this behavior? The only reason I can think of is they really think they are 'All That', or to put it another way, "They're full of themselves."
