The Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) will continue with the documentation requirement of extra foreign professionals participating in the Program More Doctors, despite the contrary opinion published today (16) by the Attorney-General (AGU).

Published in the Official Gazette of Monday, the opinion says that the regional councils of Medicine (CRMs) may not require any documents other than those specified by Provisional Measure (MP) 621/2013 and Decree 8040/2013, which governing the program, to release the provisional registration of foreign doctors.

In an interview, the attorney general of the Union Minister Luís Inácio Adams, criticized some requirements of CRMs to issue provisional registration of foreign professionals, such as informing your place of work and give the name of their tutors and supervisors. "What is required in order to give the record is, strictly, the absorption of the professional program. We understand that these requirements [other documents] have political content and aim to prevent the program, as happened in Porto Alegre, where closed advice to prevent people from entering the registration request, "said Adams.

Note the entity representing the doctors say, to maintain their control activities, CFM and 27 CRMs "need to have information about the workplace of the exchange students and the name of their respective tutors / supervisors of teaching."

The CFM also reiterated earlier statement that the public managers and physicians tutors / supervisors can be co-responsible and "subject to penalties and processes of ethical and professional, civil and criminal liability for acts committed by participants of the exchange students and Doctors More." However, CFM considers now that they still share responsibility for the guidance given to their graduate or supervised, but in "the existence of concrete fact to justify the initiation of receivership or process will be made case by case. Therefore, this flow Preliminary requires sending the requested information to the government so that the enforcement activities are initiated in an agile and effective, "adds the note board

For AGU, affirming the responsibility, the board seeks to intimidate doctors tutors. In its opinion, the AGU supports the understanding contained in the Code? Medical Ethics. For AGU, "each physician participating in the project will answer for their actions or omissions that characterize tort, considering that their responsibility is personal and subjective."

Note the CFM ends by saying that "entities are not intimidated with any concerns they may have in order to curtail the rights that are conferred by law on the defense of good medical practice for the benefit of population health."
