Monmouth Medical Education Work Environment and Benefits

Working Environment and Duty Hours

Monmouth Medical Center provides residents with a sound academic and clinical education that is carefully planned and balanced with concerns for patient safety and resident well-being. Each residency program ensures that the learning objectives of the program are not compromised by excessive reliance on residents to fulfill service obligations. Didactic and clinical education have priority in the allotment of residents’ time and energies. Duty hour assignments recognize that faculty and residents collectively have responsibility for the safety and welfare of patients. Each program has a duty hours policy and procedure that is in compliance with, and often exceeds, the standards of the ACGME common and program-specific requirements for work hours, time off, and call, as well as fatigue education and monitoring.
