CFM claims that the government pass to invest in opening more vacancies in residency

The President of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), Roberto d'Avila, argued on Tuesday (11), that the government pass to invest in opening more vacancies on residency and not the expansion of schools and medical courses . There is a false controversy between quantity and quality. The concern, rather than the number, the quality of teaching is evaluated.

In June this year, the Ministry of Education announced the expansion plan of Health Education, focusing on areas identified as priorities, which provides 10% increase in the number of vacancies in medical courses.

Currently, the country has an average of 1.9 doctor for every thousand inhabitants. The government argues that the ideal ratio would be 2.5. During the press conference, the president of CFM noted that some localities as the Federal District reach record averages over 6 doctors per thousand inhabitants, but does offer good support to the population.

There is a popular perception that physician shortage in the country. Not true. Missing doctors in the public service, where there is no career incentives, progression. Doctors working in adverse conditions, without material, said. Nobody wants to work in these conditions anywhere in the world, he added.

About the opening of institutions for medical education, Avila said that most new schools have not faculty or structure for practical classes, like corpses and hospitals. It is a fallacy and irresponsible. What doctors need is good and well trained, evaluated.

CFM data indicate that Brazil has 197 medical schools, some with two or three distinct courses. Across the country there are 208 medical courses. Also according to the council, the United States, there are 137 medical schools, even with a population greater than Brazil.

We have enough doctors. They are unevenly distributed, concentrated in the South and Southeast. The idea of ​​opening schools in the interior is not all bad, but you have to have quality. We need the vacancy residency, which is what prepares specialists. The setting is the doctor's residence. The school is not fixed, he said.

Currently, about 14 000 doctors graduate every year in Brazil, but the country records only 7000 vacancies residency.
