Medicine in turmoil

South Korean physicians walked off the job this month to protest tough working conditions including long hours and low pay, and a government plan to increase the number of medical students without addressing hospital environments. "Everyone is angry and frustrated, so we are all leaving hospitals. Please hear our voices," said the leader of the Korea Interns and Residents Association. Reuters news service has more details. Now there’s a deadline for physicians to return to work.
