About 150 doctors from the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer walked out of the hospital Wednesday and blocked traffic on Bar Ilan Highway for a short period of time, Israel Radio reported.

Dr. Zeev Fedelman, physicians' chairman at Sheba, said that the protesting doctors came from outpatient clinics, and that other than the official sanctions by the Doctors' Union no other disruption of regular activities at the hospital occurred.
