In the UK in the past few years there has been a bit of upheaval in the old junior doctor jobs market.
A UK pressure group, set up and run by doctors called Remedy UK has been representing doctors in the UK for the last few years. Many will remember the junior doctors Marchig through London on the 17th of March 2007. A medical educator writer was present on the march and recalled the following:
For the first time in a long time an organisation captured the mood of a whole group of junior doctors. After the initial progress, they have a difficult struggle against what are very powerful organisations.
Some may question the part that Remedy play representing the junior doctors in Britain. Medical Educator is inviting a member of the organisation to speak about why what they stand for is relevant to medical student in the UK and internationally. We hope to publish their views soon.
Remedy are now attempting to mount a landmark legal challenge to the whole application process. We hope to bring you a report on this ‘straight from the horses mouth’.
