Moonlighting residents should understand ACGME regulations. In addition to the 80-hour rule, residents must have:

  • One day off in seven, and cannot be oncall more than once every three nights.
  • A 10-hour time period between all daily duty periods and after in-house calls.
  • Cannot be continually on-duty for more than 24 hours, plus six additional hours for patient hand-offs and paperwork.

 

In addition, moonlighting that occurs within the residency program and/or the sponsoring institution or the non-hospital sponsor's primary clinical sites must be counted towrd the 80-hour weekly limit on duty hours.
