For example, residents have much less autonomy and control, are under more pressure to learn a huge amount of information quickly, are more frequently evaluated, have stress from taking more examinations, and have more financial pressure than a typical physician who has graduated from formal training. Residency education also involves oversight from the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, which seeks to decrease some of the pressures of residency, but an unintended consequence of their limitation of work hours has been, in some programs, the phenomenon of “work compression.” Copyright © 2019 American College of Nuclear Medicine.
