Implementation of the 80-hour workweek and introduction of NPs and PAs onto the inpatient surgical services has altered resident education at the authors' institution. Although overall most residents view the addition of NPPs to the clinical services as positive, there are concerns about the program. Although hired to fill the void left by decreasing labor hours of residents, NPPs do not necessarily have the same goals as surgery residents and there is confusion about how NPPs fit into the hierarchy of the traditional surgical team.
