Duty Hours

In 1989, the New York State legislature mandated specific regulations regarding work schedules for medical residents. The Department of ObGyn follows these which include:

  1. 24 hours off/week averaged/4 week
  2. Work week of less than 80 hours/week averaged over 4 weeks
  3. Maximum on-duty time of 24 hours
  4. Minimum of 10 hours off between work shifts
  5. Maximum of 16 hours/shift in the first year

Our rotation, call, and vacation schedules were developed to integrate the regulations of both the SUNY Guidelines and the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our schedules strive to provide a comprehensive educational experience and maintain a balanced and equitable program for all residents.
