Committee of Interns and Residents

CIR is the largest housestaff union in the United States representing over 16,000 housestaff. We aim to help unite and empower other resident physicians to have a stronger voice within their hospitals. With a growing, nationwide union of residents and fellows, we garner more negotiating power and support for our patients, our communities and ourselves. We use our collective voice to advocate for cost-effective, high quality health care for those we care for.

“Residents are often marginalized in the hospitals we work in. We want a stronger, more unified voice which gives each and every one of us the opportunity to do more, together. CIR supports us in having a strong unified voice.”
-Dr. Jessica Edwards President, CIR

Wondering how the most recent Supreme Court case affects unionized resident physicians? Click here for information on how we’re fighting back.

Less than a week after  unionized employees of the hospital took to the picket lines, residents at UC Davis Medical Center have signed up to join the union.

Open to all CIR delegates and alternates. Next year, we’ll be in Philadelphia, PA.
