Interview with Dr. Anushka Shenoy of the OHSU House Officers Union


Patricia Kullberg speaks with Dr. Anushka Shenoy, a physician-in-training in psychiatry at Oregon Health Sciences University and a leader of the newly established OHSU House Officers Union. They discuss the punishing working conditions of physicians-in-training (also known as house officers, interns and residents), how increased privatization and profit-making in the health care industry have made the medical encounter worse for both doctors and patients, and the ways that unions might help reverse some of those trends. For more see the website: House Officers Union.
