Medical interventions are becoming more complex day by day. Moreover, compared with the past, more healthcare professionals take part in the same intervention in the field of medicine. The use of technology in medical interventions has also increased. This change in the health sector brings together several legal discussions. In this study, the legal consequences that arise from the treatment processes carried out by the residents and resident educators (registerers / attending physicians), the exchange of information between them, and the usage of some messaging platforms, especially WhatsApp, in this process will be analyzed.
