Purple Book

Every week we get an email reminder from the administrative office to log our work hours (Duty Hours) on MedHub. It is easy to ignore these emails and get behind — but after a few days, we’re locked out, and it becomes even more cumbersome to enter (and requires the coordinator to take time out of their day to enter this with us!). So, we highly recommend filling out work hours right away upon receipt of the email. Make sure to include any moonlighting hours! Also required is a break of 8 hours between the end of one shift and the beginning of another. (If you stay late on call, come in late the next morning to allow yourself to rest! The rotation attendings are very understanding and accommodating about the 8-hour break rule).
