Mercadante, Minister of Education, announces the creation of jobs in medical courses offered by public and private institutions of higher education

The Ministry of Education (MEC) announced on Monday weave (5), a plan to expand the training of doctors in the country. 2415 jobs will be created, some existing courses and other new, both in public and in private universities. The growth represents 15% of medicine vacancies in the country. According to the minister, Mercadante, part of the vacancies available in the second half of this year.

The government's argument is that the ratio of doctors per capita in Brazil is very low compared to other countries. According to the ECM, the national average is 1.8 per thousand inhabitant doctor, while Uruguay, for example, the index is 3.7 and 4 in Spain.

Mercadante acknowledged that the problem is not only the number of doctors, but the distribution of professionals in the territory. He said the Ministry of Health studying measures to encourage doctors to remain in the inner cities, especially North and Northeast.

Do not simply a policy of internalization of medical schools, we need a policy for you attract these professionals to where there is low availability of doctors in the health service. "

Of the total number of vacancies that will be created, 800 are private institutions in nine in 1615 and 27 federal universities. The largest amount is in the Northeast: 775. The North will have 310 seats, the 270 Midwest, Southeast and South 220 40.

The minister said the expansion will be done with quality. One of the criteria for authorizing the opening of new jobs was the performance evaluations of the courses in the MEC.

Both the National Education Council (CNE) and the National Health Council (CNS) must authorize these processes and a prerequisite is the availability of beds at the Unified Health System (SUS) for the student to meet the practical the course. According to the minister, new job commitments are being analyzed by the CNS.

For each wave takes five beds in the SUS. The student must have practical experience medical practice during college.

The goal is to reach in 2020 with an average of 2.5 doctors per thousand inhabitants. These jobs [announced today] are still insufficient, they will have to be expanded. The vacancies that we begin to offer today only professionals will form the first six years from now and until then there is a major lack of doctors.

According to Mercadante, 1600 teachers will be hired in the federal universidaddes, by tender. The initial investment will reach $ 399 million.

CFM announces expansion of vague statement criticizing

The Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) issued a statement criticizing the plan announced on Tuesday (5), the Ministry of Education (MEC), to enlarge the vacancies in medical courses in the country. For the entity, there are many doctors in Brazil and the measures could jeopardize the quality of medical training. The opening of new schools or increase in the number of vacancies in existing is an attitude devoid of practical content and common sense, the text says.

However, in all states, there are reports of lack of professionals in public, which stems mainly from the lack of incentives for the establishment of professionals in remote areas of the interior and the peripheries of large urban centers, says CFM.

The board is concerned the number of medical schools with poor results in the evaluation of MEC and that the problem stems from the indiscriminate opening of new jobs and new courses. From 2000 to 2012, nearly doubled the total number of medical schools in Brazil - from 100 to 185 such establishments, according to the counsel.
