2)Moonlight less. Once you have the opportunity to make "real" money, it is tempting to work on your days off. Unfortunately this extra pay barely makes a dent in the overall financial burden of medical training so may not be worth the fatigue and time away from your family.
3)Exercise more. During fellowship I started running again and found that it improved my mood and job performance.
Things the program could have done differently:
1) I was fortunate to attend a residency with twice daily lectures. Considering how much time and effort the attendings put into lecture, I feel like we could have learned more if it was more structured. For example, they could have given lectures in units, so the residents would know before hand what to study each week.
2) We worked all day on call-days then worked all night. These 24 hour shifts were followed by a day off. I think taking night shifts one week at a time would have been better
3) More frequent evaluations. We received our evaluations at the end of a month-long rotation. By then it's too late to change anything. Giving us a preliminary evaluation after 2 weeks could have given us a chance to improve.
