Darshan Patel, MD, MSEd

University of New Mexico, Family Practice | I believe that we can bring about positive, democratic change for CIR and our patients. I am committed to valuing medicine and public health over profits in healthcare.


Executive Vice President: Lorenzo González, MD, MPL

Harbor UCLA, Family Medicine
CIR gives us the leverage to challenge how medicine, health, and wellness are engendered within our current society, and by advocating for the Housestaff of our nation, we move one step closer to improving the lives of the neglected and disenfranchised communities we took an oath to serve. I am committed to using my skills as a union leader to build on the victories to the labor movement to make our world a better place for all.  La union hace la fuerza, pero la participación hace la diferencia!


Oluyemi Omotoso, MBBS

Lincoln Medical & Mental Health Center, Emergency Medicine | I’m a proud, active member of CIR. Working across New York H+H hospitals to create a strong team during contract negotiations, we were able to win strong contracts and stage peaceful demonstrations across the city in support of Black Lives Matter.

My vision for CIR is to help build a democratically-run union – one that is grounded in member-led organizing, and takes a stand on issues that matter to resident physicians.
