According to the ministry, in order to increase the number of grants for the training of medical workers, the rules for placing state orders, admitting for education and training medical personnel have been approved.
"In 2021, according to the plan, 4 685 grants have been allocated. The number of grants allocated will increase annually and by 2025 will amount to more than 5 thousand. Also, from January 1, 2021, salaries for 247 thousand medical workers have been increased, for doctors - by 30%, for paramedical workers – by 20%. In addition, for staffing medical organizations with qualified human resources, the state provides relocation allowance for young professionals who have arrived to work in rural areas, which in 2021 increased from 70 to 100 MCI," the department added.
In addition, a transition to international training standards for medical personnel is envisaged. In this regard, a mechanism has been worked out for amending the state compulsory education standard for medical and pharmaceutical specialties.
