Teaching hospitals and residency programs across the country are scrambling to implement the new ACGME resident work hours rules that will take effect on July 1, 2011.

The Work Smart Toolkit is a comprehensive document detailing tips and resources for residency program redesign and case studies of innovative programs that have already made the successful transition.
