It's the time for sustainable and fulfilling primary care

ResidentsResidency training, regardless of specialty, is by design unsustainable. Working unsustainable hours in a stressful environment is not a recipe for the development of fulfilling professional practices. With the gradual improvement in resident work hours, it's the time to restructure residency training so graduates receive training in an environment that allows them to develop habits that create sustainable and fulfilling lives as family physicians.
