Duty an additional difficulty for graduates in working life

Because of shortage of physicians, Hungarian residents frequently take care in duty and also in emergency situation alone. To decrease the risk of iatrogenic mistakes the practical knowledge of residents should be improved. Our department organizing regularly for all residents a one month skill training to improve their practical knowledge and to be able to provide a sufficient work in every day life.

Additional information:

Because of shortage of physicians, from residents are immediate required to enter into the on-call scheme. However, according to a new ministerial decree on surgery residents of the first two years, are allowed to be on duty when the emergency task has been fulfilled and only under control of a trainee specialist. The physician shortages often make it impossible to meet for ministerial decree conditions and the residents illegally take care alone.
