I made the mistake of calculating how many hours I worked this year.
I worked 48 out of 52 weeks this year.
I worked a total of 3789.76 hours - that equates to an average of 78.95 hours a week… every week… for 48 weeks this year.
(Also not counting into that is the shifts I’m working now and the shift I’m doing Saturday).
The most hours I ever worked in one week? 99 hours (vascular surgery). The fewest? 44 (SICU).
Surgery residency is no joke friends.
60 hours from now I will never be an intern again.
