    Are NYC doctor suicides linked to bullying?
    Duration: 16min | 17/05/2018

    "Dear Dr. Wible, two residents have killed themselves within a single month at NYU Langone. One of them hanged herself in my finance's building. The building's windows were jammed to not open more than a couple of inches after another resident jumped to her death two years ago. I guess they thought this and offering student counseling services would stop residents from killing themselves. A part of me wants to apologize for the last sentence and ward off my cynicism, but I won't because, as you said, we need to shine a light on medicine's dirty little secret before it's too late. There are posters offering counseling services and heartfelt emails being sent to the students, but here's one thing no one in power to help is mentioning—the supervisors and their bullying.”
