The Ministry of Health plans to resolve the problem of trainee remuneration.
This was announced during a briefing by Minister of Health Maxim Stepanov, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“The introduction of the second stage of medical reform has brought about the appropriate adjustments. When we started to analyze during our audit, the medical guarantees program simply did not provide for intern salaries. And this will be corrected by us so that they can calmly complete their studies under the new conditions. Unfortunately, this problem has not yet been resolved by all instructions from the Ministry of Health. But I hope that in the near future we will make an appropriate decision, “said Stepanov.

The minister also added that this year, the procedure for admission to internships for graduates of higher medical education establishments remains unchanged.
“There are appropriate commissions which will sit in higher education establishments, then, in agreement with the health departments, free internship places will be offered to interns trained in public funds,” he explained.
