    I highly doubt doctors would want to unionize.

    They have the upper hand in the negotiations. All the education and there is not enough of them. Pretty much writes your own ticket. Hospitals court as many good doctors is they can, no need for representation.

    I would think that if somehow they could be presented with immunity from frivilous lawsuits and deeply discounted liabilty insurance then you would have something.

    A lot of doctors these days pool together and are under a hospitals direction rather you think they are or not, giving them some of the benefits above with typically guaranteed income from the hospital.

    The American Medical Association is one of the most successful unions.
