The Brazilian and Portuguese governments began a process of working to create mechanisms for mutual recognition of medical degrees, granting permission for university graduates in a country can act in another.

As part of the policy of attracting foreign doctors to work in underserved regions of these professionals in Brazil, which has been designed by the federal government. One of the main strategies is the mutual recognition of diploma, Padilha said at a public hearing in the House of Representatives on Wednesday (12). The hearing was organized by the Committee on Constitution and Justice and Citizenship (CCJC), Education Commission (EC), Committee on Foreign Relations and National Defense (CREDN), Commission on Social Security and Family (CSSF) Commission and the National Integration , Regional Development and Amazon (Cindra).

The dialogue with the Ministry of Health began in Portugal in May, during the 66th World Health Assembly in Geneva, when the European country presented their experience fixing, provisioning and attracting foreign doctors. The European country has about 200 doctors trained outside the country in its health system, working for a temporary period in primary areas difficult to uphold. Besides Portugal, there was talks with Spain, UK, Canada, Australia and the United States.

This mechanism was already planned between Brazil and Portugal by the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Consultation, in force since 2000, but did not have direct involvement of ministries of health, which must close agreement on the issue this week.
