Shortening work hours, lengthening residency

Rumor has it that resident work hours will be shortened to 56-hours per week. How to make up the experience? Add a year to residency of course.

I wonder how many medical students would support that, considering the burden of $140,000 they have in school loans waiting to be repaid.
