After working shifts as long as 26 hours at a time, often without any break to rest or even eat or go to the bathroom for several hours, hundreds of medical interns and residents across Israel handed in their resignation letters. The Mirsham union for medical residents had made efforts to negotiate with the Health Ministry, but saw no results. Mirsham said this is only the first phase, adding that more resignations could soon follow.
