The state programs “Country Doctor” and “Country Paramedic”, additional social payments to support graduates of medical colleges and universities are producing results today. They also create additional financial motivation for students. Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said this after visiting the Ufa Medical College, answering a question from the Bashinform News Agency.
The Russian Minister of Health believes paying attention to practice-oriented training is necessary. “New opportunities are being created in educational institutions, mannequins have appeared, where it is possible to practice injections, dressings, suturing, all practical skills that a health worker may encounter, and he already understands that he can do all this in life. Students must learn to communicate with patients, be able to hear them and predict possible risks of complications based on their symptoms. Well, training on modern equipment. The technology is complex, and the health worker must use it skillfully.
Demands are also increasing for teachers, who must be informed and prepared. They should come to medical organizations, see how doctors and nurses work with the equipment, and then clearly explain all this to their students,” said the head of the Russian Ministry of Health.
According to Mikhail Murashko, it is essential that today, during communication, not one of the medical college students doubted the correctness of their choice of profession. “It's brilliant. I am glad there is high competition for admission to medical universities and colleges. In Ufa, I was told that the average grade point for entering college was 4.5. And we see how high the requirements are for applicants. We are proud that schoolchildren with such a high degree of preparation are entering our specialty,” said the Russian Minister of Health, answering a question from the Bashinform News Agency.
