With regards to violations naman, the ACGME is basically on the right track, but it does not necessarily mean that we have to adapt 100% of the changes they instituted. Although I favor the route to a reduced working time for all residents, I also see the point of those who approach this conservatively because as has been stated there will be problems with "continuity of care" and "number of cases" seen. However, in our scenario, 36 hrs every 3 or every other day without even "from duty" status is just too much without any single break given within the week is just practically ludicrous and frankly speaking idiotic. The human body can basically adapt to a 24 hours duty even a 36 hours duty status however, it is essential that the resident be given at least 24 to 48 hours of in a single week. There are a lot more of possible combinations, kaya lang the status quo is very much resistant to change.

Bear in mind also that despite our efforts to brag about how good the Filipino doctor is, the rest of the 1st world where we try to get into doesn't exactly think so. Consultants who practice in Singapore are ranked the same as your average Pinoy GP. Australia, New Zealand, and UK needs doctors but the heck they really make it hard for us to enter plus the costs you have to shoulder and if ever you do get to enter your relegated to the jobs that their own doctors don't want. In the US despite the fact that we were a former colony, despite the fact that we are probably one of the few countries that adopt an American style medical education and residency program, limit us to taking the least wanted specializations in the US. We are not able to compete. Yung mga latak na lang ang tira sa atin and its because just like what happened to nursing they know that training here for medicine has been compromised. Hindi laro ang residency, it is serious stuff, however, yung mga naka pwesto ngayon treat it as a mere game and have the all too common "pwede na yan" mindset.

There is also this current notion na okay lang mamasyente ka ng mamasyente tapos magbasa ka ng libro. Problem is you go to residency nga to also gain the consultants experience and perspective. The criticism and scrutiny of your management and current medical knowledge by experts in the field is what refines your pathway to being a consummate specialist. The book cannot give you everything. If that was the case why do we even bother with a formal residency program? Why don't resident programs just put up office in the hospital and we can do this open university style. I enroll, I pick my hospital, I study on my own, then we can meet once a week or once a month to talk about cases and you can give me exams to evaluate my progress. Mas maganda ata yun. I can pick a toxic hospital with a relaxed schedule which gives me the right amount of pressure and the right amount of stress, balanced with enough rest and relaxation.

some policy on a rationalized pre residency program should be made... i think a month with some 24 hour duty without meals or compensation is a bit too much...

thank you... now if you want to implement changes so that applicants won't be exploited, what office do you address this concern? to the residency committee of the specialty organization? the pma? that is why the accreditation council for graduate medical education of the philippines is still needed....

if there are infractions of legal or ethical nature by hospital residents, where do you complain aside from the chairman and training officer? the standard training contract is not clear....
