Future doctors in Russia will continue to be trained primarily according to the target recruitment. This will provide hospitals and clinics with new staff, and will give graduates job guarantees. Admission quotas for targeted education in universities for 2022 were approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
Each year, the Government, on the basis of applications from the regions, determines how many percent of the total number of budget places in each specialty is allocated for target groups. They, in turn, enter an educational institution in the direction of future employers and study for free. After receiving the diploma, the graduate must work for at least three years in the organization that sent him.
As the Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Falkov noted, targeted training is one of the most effective measures for adapting higher education to the needs of the real sector of the economy and social sphere.
“Organizations today can conclude contracts with both applicants and students and graduate students at any stage of training. Given the situation with the pandemic, the profession of a doctor has become even more in demand among applicants: every year more and more school graduates strive to connect their lives with medicine. The increase in the target training quota will allow providing qualified specialists, including district hospitals and rural outpatient clinics, which is especially important in modern conditions, ”the Minister said.
In the coming academic year, most budget-funded places in medical specialties will remain targeted. In particular, in the specialties “General Medicine” and “Pediatrics” their share will be 75% (specialty), and in the most scarce areas of residency – 100%.
These areas include Anesthesiology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Radiology, Radiology, Pediatric Oncology, Pediatric Endocrinology, Cardiology, Neurology, Otorhinolaryngology, Ophthalmology, Pulmonology “,” Organization of Health Care and Public Health “,” Bacteriology “,” Infectious Diseases “,” Ambulance “.
The President of Russia Vladimir Putin ordered to increase the quotas for the target recruitment in medical specialties following the results of the Address to the Federal Assembly in 2020. This is especially important for solving personnel problems in remote areas and rural areas.
In addition, large quotas have been allocated for future specialists in the areas of “Radio-electronic systems and complexes”, “Operation of railways”, “Systems for ensuring the movement of trains.” The share of targeted budget places for them will be 70%. Also, large quotas – 60% – are allocated for the specialties “Construction of railways, bridges and transport tunnels”, “Design of aircraft and rocket engines”, “Aircraft and helicopter construction”, “Testing of aircraft”.
