Notes

Abstract: My research topic is something very near and dear to me. It is a study on the philosophies and practices of the current medical school establishment. This is an area that has been questioned for sometime and I, as a future medical student, cannot help but wonder what is better for the patient. I will be focusing on the hours worked by residents. Based on my exposure thus far, I believe that the current practices should be upheld. To test my hypothesis, I will shadow a group of residents. During their shifts, I will test their mental stamina through a series of tests. I will then compare these results to benchmark tests previously given. My goal is to see if the residents can still perform in the same range at the end of their shifts as they can when rested. I am very eager to complete this experiment. Not only do I get to test my theory, but I will gain insight into what my future has in store.
