More Medical Intern No-Shows Expected

Medical interns at a number of hospitals say they will not appear for work, Tuesday, in solidarity with young specialists who have also been absent in protest over the way they were treated in the latest collective bargaining agreement between the Israel Medical Federation and the government, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio.

Executive Director Roni Gimzu of the Health Ministry instructed hospital managers, Monday evening, to explain to doctors the significance and consequence of their resignations over the issue.
