Leaders of the Israel Medical Association expressed deep disappointment Thursday night with over 1,000 medical residents from hospitals around the country who sent in their signed resignations to management as a demonstrative act. The residents, who study five years after seven years of medical school and a year of internship, said they will give up their careers in 30 days when the letters take effect if they are not satisfied with the agreement that will come out of the 138-day labor dispute.

"We are very surprised and disappointed by the residents’ rejection of the IMA’s historic agreement that is being worked out with the government and the other employers," Dr. Ze’ev Feldman, a deputy chairman of the IMA, who echoed the sentiments of chairman Dr. Leonid Eidelman.
