Good evening! Echoing the other participants, I'm very excited to participate in this forum.

One of the prominent physicians in my hospital talks frequently about "personomics" - an idea that an individual's life circumstances play an important part, alongside their genetics, exposures, etc., in the manifestation of particular disease.

Applying that concept to residency training leads me to wonder how important are work conditions, "resident-omics," if you will, and not strictly the hours we work or the way those hours are distributed, to the quality of care we deliver and our feelings of fatigue and burnout. Will the results of iCOMPARE or FIRST shed any light on this issue?
