Back home from completing a four-day work weekend, Dr. Nii joins Dr. Renée in the studio to talk about a recent Wall Street Journal article that reported on Stanford Health Care residents joining the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR), the largest housestaff union in the United States. The doctors discuss their personal experiences with unions as well as the varied implications of this supermajority move.
Things to expect in this episode:
- Conflict between doctors explored – lack of professionalism, egos, stress, work avoidance and energy conservation
- Renée’s experience as a delegate with CIR
- The Match Program, anti-trust laws, collective bargaining and strikes
- The pros, pros, pros and con of unions in medicine
- The drastic percentage disparity between unionized residents and doctors
