Neurosurgeon Featured in Article about Medical Residents

As part of its coverage of the recent American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates meeting, a June 14 MedPage Today article titled “Medical Residents Need Better Working Conditions, AMA Delegates Say” featured Jason M. Schwalb, MD, FAANS. In the article, Dr. Schwalb, an AANS alternate delegate to the AMA, noted that “we need to attack the educational debt and not impose unfunded mandates on our residency programs... It’s just really not feasible without increased GME [graduate medical education] funding, and we think really the better way to go about this is by increasing student aid.” The delegates were discussing a resolution related to medical residents’ working conditions.
