Economist Douglas Staiger talks about physician work hours

Doctors are famous for working long hours. But according to Dartmouth economist Douglas Staiger, physicians today aren't putting in quite as much time at the office as they were a few years ago. In fact, over the past 10 years, the average workweek of a physician dropped from 55 to 51 hours. In an interview with the Dartmouth College Office of Public Affairs, Staiger talked about his findings and what might be behind this change. Read more about Staiger's research in the Summer 2010 issue of Dartmouth Medicine.
