Interns, residents, and fellows at OHSU - also known as house officers - submitted union authorization cards on Tuesday, October 15th. A strong majority of the over 800 house officers signed authorization cards signaling their desire to form OHSU-House Officers Union/AFSCME. House officers are a crucial part of clinical operations at OHSU, often the first physician a patient sees in the emergency room, hospital, or clinic. “As physicians on the front line, we need a real voice to make decisions that affect our patients, our ongoing medical education, and our lives. We believe a union can facilitate this. We are proud to work at OHSU and we are confident that negotiations will strengthen OHSU’s ability to provide world-class patient care and medical education” said Dr. Heather Buxton, a second-year psychiatry resident.
