The 2014-2015 Housestaff Association Executive Committee convened in August and meets monthly. Representatives to the school and hospital committees have been appointed and will represent resident views on these committees throughout the year. Contact the designated representative(s) or the HSA Office with your concerns. If you have concerns about your work environment or training at any of the practice sites please discuss with your program or contact the Housestaff Association office directly.
Stipend discussions resulted in a 2% increase for PGY 1-6 levels for the 2015-16 academic year.
The HSA officers participate in the GME/UCH Chief Resident meetings which have provided a valuable venue to discuss hospital-patient issues with the UCH leadership. Additional call space is currently being addressed at UCH. Watch for Housestaff Association Newsletters to keep abreast of details and other issues.
The annual Housestaff Association Survey will be coming out in the spring. Your participation allows us to advocate resident interests to the hospitals and administration, striving to improve the resident environment and experience. Hospitals have been receptive to addressing survey concerns.
Professionalism First The confidential reporting system is available. Medical students and residents can provide confidential reporting on other residents or faculty, both professional lapses and good professional practices.
