Doctors are in short supply, but the number remains limited. Unimore placement test

The recent months of the epidemic and the forced reorganization of public health services have significantly highlighted the shortage of physicians, particularly in some sectors and specialties or in some specific regional areas. From the emergency room to family doctors. If the crux of the question is to be found in the complex financial statements of local health firms, the question appears to be broader.

Inevitably, a long-running debate about the training aspect has reopened at the national level. In other words, a renewed discussion about whether to keep the number limited to access the university’s medical and surgical faculties, which have been strictly regulated for years. On several occasions, voices from the university and health ministries have stressed the need to go beyond the current model. But as for fact-testing, nothing fundamental has changed so far.

Available places

The training potential that universities have entered into the database is 14,740 places for candidates from EU and non-EU countries residing in Italy, compared to 14,020 last year. The ministerial decision regulating these aspects allocates places for universities temporarily, pending defining the agreement that will be taken within the framework of the permanent conference between the state and the regions.

In the specific case of Modena, where the admission notice for the next academic year has been published in the past few hours, there is no news. This follows the same methods in the past and in particular the same numbers.

In all, there are 172 places for Italian citizens, EU citizens wherever they are, and non-EU citizens legally residing in Italy, of which 14 places are for students of the Military Academy of Modena, and another 8 are for non-EU citizens residing in Italy. There are also 20 places remaining for the Master’s course in Dentistry and Prosthetic Dentistry.
