SANTA CLARA, Cuba, Dec. 6 (Omar Ruiz, Grupo Decoro / www.cubanet.org)
Health minister Damodar Peña Penton says doctors who want to emigrate
should face stiffer requirements.
The health department requires that doctors who request permission to
emigrate spend three to five years at posts specified by authorities in the
region where the medial practioners live.
"We have to increase the strength of the evaluations of the re-settled
doctors and our control over them," warned Peña during a meeting
with regional medical directors, according to a source who sought anonymity.
A poor evaluation of a doctor who seeks to emigrate means that he or she has
to spend more work time before leaving.
