A video detailing the alleged sexist and racist bullying experienced by junior doctors in South Africa, produced by Yumna Moosa has been watched more than 100 000 times to date.
In the video Moosa says she had to speak up about the abuse and harassment she suffered in the hands of her supervisor "an award winning medical lecturer" after the hospital management said there was nothing wrong with his behaviour.
She the recorded a video which she posted on YouTube.
His comments were sexist, racist, Islamophobic but it was anything to get our attention. From his explanation it was to motivate us to become better doctors, it was well intentions.— Yumna Moosa, Junior doctor
Moosa says when she spoke to other compassionate, kind senior doctors about the bad treatment they would say "its just a small time, she should suck it up and get through it". It is seen as an initiation period.
She says it is not appropriate that junior doctors are sometimes called stupid, incompetent and worthless when they make mistakes.
Moosa says speaking up about the treatment of doctors has damaged her career because it is not easy to speak up and go back to work. She quit her medical career and is now doing a PhD in Bioinformatics.

After the interview aired on CapeTalk, a number of listeners called in questioning Moosa's fitness as a medical practitioner. They argue that she is using these allegations to cover up her incompetence.
Despite these views, many junior doctors have come out in full support of the claims she has made about conditions young doctors face.
