Hundreds Of Doctors Resign As Israel’s Medical Crisis Grows

4

idf-hospitalThe crisis in Israel’s medical services escalated on Wednesday, as dozens more residents resigned on Wednesday, and dozens of additional senior doctors handed in letters of resignation in solidarity.

Around 400 residents reportedly resigned on Wednesday, while at least 200 senior doctors handed in the letters.

In solidarity, sixty fifth-year medical students from Tel Aviv University demonstrated outside Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv.

Meanwhile, residents, senior doctors and medical students presented a petition to the High Court against the agreement over pay and conditions signed by the government and the Israel Medical Association in August this year, and the nine-year duration of the agreement, which “puts the doctors in a position where they have no choice.”

The petition is the third of its kind to be presented by doctors to the High Court.

Earlier Wednesday, Rambam Medical Center staff shut down the hospital in protest at Health Ministry instructions to immediately fire ten of the 31 senior doctors who had tendered letters of resignation.

  1. it will happen here when med school costs these young dedicated souls five years of hard work and study 50,000 per year base tuition plus books equipment and so on they are 1/2 million in the hole before they even start ad on to that insurance it will happen here

  2. All that is happening everywhere is all part of the geulah process; the bankruptcy of countries, what’s happening with the medical world, etc., etc. There will be no one to rely on by our Father in Heaven; just as our prophets and sages have prophecied. May the geulah come with great rachamim upon unzere Yidden and the righteous of the velt. Shoin neinter vi veiter.
