Staff is­sues of ru­ral med­i­cal sta­tions and ru­ral health cen­ters (clin­ics) will be solved by in­tro­duc­ing the prac­tice of com­pul­sory test­ing for grad­u­ates of higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

At the be­gin­ning of the cur­rent school year, grad­u­ates will be obli­ga­to­rily as­signed to work in ru­ral health fa­cil­i­ties and ru­ral (city) fam­ily clin­ics (RHF and RFC) for sub­se­quent com­pul­sory re­spon­si­bil­ity (train­ing) at the place of per­ma­nent res­i­dence. This fol­lows from the Res­o­lu­tion of the Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters “On mea­sures to fur­ther im­prove the train­ing of med­i­cal per­son­nel”.

To im­ple­ment the in­tended mea­sures, a com­mis­sion is cre­ated un­der the Min­istry of Health from among the of­fi­cials of the min­istry, heads of re­gional bod­ies of health­care ad­min­is­tra­tions, med­i­cal univer­si­ties and or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The di­rec­tions of Bach­e­lors of Med­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to which grad­u­ates are dis­trib­uted for com­pul­sory study, will be de­fined by the Min­istry of Health. The term of com­pul­sory com­ple­tion of a grad­u­ate course con­sists of 3 years (36 months). At the same time, the qual­ity of train­ing of the spe­cial­ists will re­main at the fore­front of the health­care.

Ef­forts aimed at im­prov­ing the med­i­cal univer­si­ties have been con­tin­u­ing. In this con­text the most se­ri­ous mea­sures are taken, in­clud­ing even as rad­i­cal as the clo­sure of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions that do not meet the re­quire­ments of the time. Thus, ef­forts to stop the work of the Ferghana branch of the Tashkent Med­i­cal Academy have al­ready be­gun in the 2017/2018 aca­demic year there has been no re­cruit­ment for fresher grades. A de­ci­sion on the phased clo­sure of the branch was pre­scribed in the Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters’ De­cree «On mea­sures to fur­ther im­prove field train­ing of per­son­nel of med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions». In pre­vi­ous years, the com­pe­ti­tion for en­rolling at this univer­sity was at least 21 ap­pli­cants for one quota place, and thus it used to be the high­est among all higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions of Uzbek­istan This state of af­fairs is ex­plained by the spe­cial­iza­tion of the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion: there, most stu­dents were trained to work in the ser­vice of san­i­tary and epi­demi­o­log­i­cal su­per­vi­sion. How­ever, de­spite the pop­u­lar­ity, the in­sti­tu­tion was un­able to en­sure the qual­ity of train­ing, and there­fore faced such an un­pop­u­lar de­ci­sion.
