A few days ago the news broke that the medicine course at USP (Universidade de São Paulo) is the busiest of the vestibular Fuvest for 2013. In all, 15,517 candidates have registered, representing 56.43 people per vacancy. When we talk about universities like USP, UNICAMP, Unifesp, pass the entrance exam is the beginning of a dream. The pedagogical model and infrastructure of these institutions and their hospitals to ensure student sure you receive proper training to become a good doctor, able to assist citizens with efficacy, safety and quality.

But that's not what happens in most of the 197 medical schools in Brazil. The indiscriminate opening of new courses and without the minimum required for the courses that are at least reasonable transformed many vestibular Russian roulette.

We have courses without trained teachers, with teaching questionable grill without teaching hospital and many other problems. This makes it impossible to form a good doctor. In our profession the patient contact is everything. It is essential to like us, know the patient, understand it and understand the root of his illness. Who is not possessing these qualities, have no medical condition that, even getting good theoretical training.

The point is that often neither necessary theoretical basis that academics receive some medical schools in the country. This is why, incidentally, the Regional Council of Medicine has just become mandatory by Resolution 239/2012, the Examination Cremesp as a new instrument for assessing worker training recent graduates.

The proof will be a tool to monitor the quality of teaching, allowing the results become subsidies for making decisions with regard to training.

We have courses without trained teachers, with teaching questionable grill without teaching hospital and many other problems. This makes it impossible to form a good doctor.
Cremesp's initiative should be taken as an example to all other states. Create parameters to find out what medical schools proffer their students it is necessary to reverse the current landscape and avoid exposing the population to medical care provided by professional training dubious.

It is worth noting that the new Council resolution paulista now focuses on graduates of 2012, for which obtaining registration will only be possible upon presentation of proof of who performed the test, regardless of the grade obtained.

I never tire of repeating that to be a doctor you need a certain sixth sense to intuit how is the patient's health by looking in your eye, taking in his hands. In exercising this activity, no one check the decisions taken. Nobody reviews the conduct of the surgeon is to open the abdomen, and nobody gives a recipe that takes the patient to leave the doctor's office. Sign of this professional responsibility that does not end with the departure of the patient.

It is an area where there is paramount need of vocation. In this sense, it is not enough knowledge to pass the entrance exam. In addition to receiving training impeccable, the ideal would be that each candidate was assessed by a psychometric test that selects not only the one who knows more, who possesses the characteristics required by the profession. If so is, we are in fact seeking to safeguard the health and life of citizens.
