Why are the resident doctors on strike?
Ford’s General Secretary Dr. Sunil Arora said that there is pressure on all the resident doctors. Their training is getting affected and the work pressure is also increasing. He said that it is a three-year course. If there are 100-100 PG students in each batch, then those who are in second year have to work for first year also, because till now PG students have not come in first year. When the year is about to end, then the third year course is also going to be completed. He too will leave. Their pressure will also come on the second year. There is different training in PG every year. Training is not being done due to pressure. If there is no training in the specialization course, then it can affect the career. This is the reason why resident doctors who are in medical colleges are compelled to strike demanding admission of fresh students.
