President’s message

Dear Colleagues,

You are no doubt well aware that the last few weeks have been rather busy for your Federation. In fact, psychological distress among residents along with Bills 10 and 20 have been, and continue to be, front and centre in the public eye. This has meant greater involvement from several of us, so as to take the mystery out of these issues for the general public. I also think I speak for all medical residents when I declare how very proud I was to see our community—the upcoming generation of doctors—mobilize, speak out, and intervene in order to improve our colleagues’ work conditions. The entire medical culture will benefit from this sustained effort.
