Shorter work hours for first-year residents are causing a big shift as hospitals adapt to the new limits. It has meant a hiring boom for hospitalists and a need to pack more tasks into shorter shifts. And physicians are now finding themselves performing more basic tasks that used to be handled by residents, causing something of a professional identity crisis, says Dr. Bradley Sharpe, of the University of California at San Francisco.
