Dear Members,

Letter from the President: CIR is coming this Saturday, 2 February 2019

Dear colleagues,

Happy New Year, MLK Day, and Lunar New Year!

Why Idaho? A Resident's Perspective

I chose the Idaho Advanced Clinician Track for myriad reasons, principally because it places me in a premier position to be prepared for my intended future employment. I practiced and learned in the heart of a major city, working the most difficult of cases with the support of a superb academic facility. Not only did I gain experience in an urban center and the challenges it posed, I then moved to a much smaller city, now work in community hospitals, and am acquiring experience in practices such as telepsychiatry and integrated care.

Letter from the President

Dear colleagues,

Winter is coming. In a few weeks the season will again change and UWHA contract negotiations will begin. The literal and figurative meanings of the statement adequately capture the brevity of this time.

Reminder: Take Our Survey

Your voice is important to us!

A survey link was sent to your inbox regarding priorities for the contract negotiations coming up this year. We're here to make your job and work-life balance better. Help us do that by telling us what is most important to you! If you haven't already taken the survey, watch for a reminder e-mail coming soon. It will only take a few minutes of your time.

Best,
