Dozen new medical interns prop Algarve health centres

Twelve medical interns plus a doctor of public health begin their specialist training this month.
They were welcomed to the Algarve by the head of the region’s health board, Paulo Morgado, and other health chiefs that oversee the Algarve’s health services.
They were selected for internships in the Algarve after applying for a place through a tender launched last year.
During the course of the welcome meeting, Paulo Morgado congratulated the new interns for choosing the Algarve for their internships, and gave a brief perspective on the evolution of health care in the Algarve in recent years, highlighting the fundamental role that the speciality of General and Family Medicine assumes in the provision of health care and in its main areas of intervention and proximity to the local population.
Wrapping up his speech, Paulo Morgado assured the new doctors that they will be given all the support necessary during their training courses that are now beginning in the region, and extended an invitation for them to stay on in the Algarve at the end of their training.
It should be noted that, in addition to these 12 family GPs and the internal public health doctor, the Algarve Health Region received, earlier this month. another 42 doctors in several specialities and 120 internal physicians from a total of 175 physicians that have internships in the Algarve’s national health service units.
Compared with last year, this year there were more internal physicians choosing the Algarve for an internship, which, local authorities say, may help establish more medical professionals in the region in the future.
