Last week's Resident Forum summarized resolutions discussed at the 1997 American Medical Association (AMA) Interim Meeting on funding for graduate medical education, resident contracts, and the residency application process. This week's column focuses on the resolutions concerning resident benefits, public health, and related issues. A summary of all the actions recently taken by the AMA House of Delegates (HOD) is available through the AMA web page: http://www.ama-assn.org/meetings/public/int97/.

Educational Leave in Residency Programs calls on the AMA to encourage residency programs across the country to allow residents to attend educational conferences and other professional meetings without requiring the resident to use vacation time.
