Physician Unionization: Might Physician Unions Be a Useful Solution to Help Restore Physician Autonomy?

Join the AMA Academic Physician Section and Barak Richman, JD, PhD, author of the 2022 JAMA editorial, “Restoring Physician Authority in an Era of Hospital Dominance,” for a balanced discussion of the potential advantages and disadvantages of physician unionization in the academic medical center. Also hear from Jay Hochstzein, MD, an attending radiologist at Jacobi Medical Center and 2nd Vice President at Doctor’s Council, a physician union in the New York City area, and Anna Yap, MD, an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of California-Davis School of Medicine who led the creation of a residents’ and fellows’ union while a resident at UCLA.
