Medical and dental graduates may have to pass a proficiency examination to obtain professional registration, if approved project of Senator Serys Slhessarenko (PT, MT). The test proposed by the parliament is already being done four years ago by the Regional Council of Medicine of São Paulo (Cremesp) with the sixth-year students in the medical courses.

Cremesp's initiative, which began on a trial basis, to ascertain the knowledge essential for professional practice, at this year recorded a failure rate that is almost double compared to the first examination. In 2005, the disapproval was 31% and in 2008 reached 61%. For Cremesp, this result indicates that the quality of medical education in Sao Paulo is worse.

The project's goal (102/06 PLS) is the regulatory examination along with the Regional Council of Medicine and Dentistry and establish that, for professional registration, you will need to demonstrate the level of knowledge essential to the profession. The examination will be submitted to future doctors and dentists, if the proposition is approved, should be done along the lines of what is done today by the Bar Association of Brazil (OAB).

In favor of the proposal, Serys remember that in recent years, the Ministry of Education has authorized the opening of a large number of medical and dental schools. The senator acknowledges that the examination is not ideal and argues that the assessment of academic background, skills and attitudes of future professionals is made throughout the educational experience. But he believes that the examination can be a reliable instrument, especially when it comes to evaluating only the minimum conditions for professional practice.

According to Senator Serys, similar measures have been adopted in countries like Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico, Spain and Panama.
