Obviously, this makes the news because ER docs are on the COVID frontlines. I find their situation to be abhorrent and certainly worse than the oversupplied RadOnc issue.
I post this here only because the oft-repeated argument of the "RadOnc Job Market is FINE" crowd is that "unemployment is low". They say that we shouldn't be pointing at things like inability to find jobs in certain locations, inability to find/sign contracts "early" in the final year of training, increase in fellowships, etc, as evidence that the job market in Radiation Oncology is bad. We're wrong for raising these points! There's no data!
However, all of these points seem to be newsworthy for Emergency Medicine.
