Ponta Delgada ,  May 10, 2019

Regional Health Service has attractive conditions for training and professional path of medical students at University of the Azores, says Rui Luís

The Regional Secretary for Health stated in Ponta Delgada that medical students at the University of the Azores have attractive conditions for their training and professional path in the Regional Health Service.
Rui Luís spoke at the opening session of "uMED 2019 - 4th Medical and Scientific Congress of the Azores." On the occasion, he highlighted the conditions created by the Regional Government for the maintenance of these health professionals in the archipelago.
"The Azores are increasingly becoming a desirable territory to reconcile quality of life, family, training and professional activity," the government official stressed, adding that "the Regional Government has created conditions to attract young doctors."
In this context, the Regional Secretary pointed out the rapid opening of recruitment procedures and the provision of specialised training outside and within the Region. In this regard, he mentioned the Training Plan of the Regional Directorate developed by the Regional Directorate for Health, which is mainly focused on the medical emergency training of professionals working on islands without hospital.
"We continue to provide health centres and hospitals with modern equipment, while remodelling and expanding a complex network of structures to improve the working conditions of professionals and the quality of care to health users," said Rui Luís.
The Imaging Information System, which will enter into operation this year, was highlighted as a relevant technological innovation measure at the service of medicine in the Azores.
"This system, already tested in some health centres, represents a Government's investment of about 1.4 million Euros and will enable the sharing of radiology exams among health units from anywhere in the Region," said the government official.
Hence, the Secretary for Health expressed his confidence in the progressive filling of medical vacancies.
"We are expecting this to be the case. This year, 80 young doctors are beginning their training period and become part of the universe of almost 600 doctors working in primary and differentiated health care," said the government official.
The Regional Secretary also pointed out telemedicine as "a window of opportunity" for the practice of medicine in a geographically dispersed archipelago, such as the Azores.
"The solution for a new 'modus operandi' in medicine will require the development and adoption of new models. Telemedicine is a powerful tool to leverage these new models," noted Rui Luís.
