Hello again ladies. :wave: Do any of you have any information on part-time/shared residencies or know where I can find any? I’m finding it difficult to gather information on this topic. :confused: It sounds like a great idea for resident moms and I’m dying to learn more about it. :goodvibes: Thanks again!
From my understanding (3rd hand hearing about someone who did it) Its not as great as it sounds. It usually is just extra vacation months, and a prolonged residency course. For example, you might work every other month for 6 years instead of every month for 3, but the months that you do work are regular residency months with call, 30 hour days, etc. The person I heard about who did it was a man whose wife was also a resident. They worked alternate months so someone was always home with the kids. I personally think that what kids need most is consistancy. They will adapt to a crazy schedule as long as it is consistant and that changing the schedule every month will only confuse and upset them.
