Process for hiring specialists at ISSSTE
He recalled that the Guidelines to regulate the selection calls for applicants graduated from medical specialties at ISSSTE, graduates and specialists in Nursing from the National School of Nursing, graduates in Dietetics and Nutrition, and master’s degrees in Clinical Nutrition from the School of ISSSTE Dietetics and Nutrition were published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) on April 25, 2023.
This strategy arose in the supervision tours to medical units, when talking with the residents, who made clear the requirement of the ID. “Applying practical judgment and common sense, today they can already be hired while it is in process.”
For this reason, Pedro Zenteno summoned the 780 resident doctors graduated and trained at ISSSTE to be attentive to the calls to be part of the institute’s workforce, especially in the new hospitals that are under construction in Jalisco, Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Baja California Sur and Chiapas, where services will be provided in different medical specialties. They will be working at 100 percent in the first quarter of 2024.
The Director of Administration and Finance, Almond Lorena Ortiz Genisexpressed that the new guidelines are one more step in the institution, and will be reflected for the benefit of the affiliates.
“They lay the foundations to act in congruence with the strategies and needs of the institute, by providing these personnel that ISSSTE itself trains, retaining them, creating the right conditions and putting bureaucracy aside to avoid brain drain.”
In turn, the Strategic Director of Information, Supervision and Evaluation, Hidalgo Borghio Ruiz Hernández, stressed that this is transcendental, because it is the opportunity for health professionals trained at the institute to stay to work.
The president of the National Executive Committee (CEN) of the ISSSTE National Union (SNTISSSTE)Norma Liliana Rodríguez Argüelles, recognized the joint work of the different areas to change the norm, “because it always remained with good intentions and it was not until the arrival of the general director, Pedro Zenteno, that this initiative was presented to the Board of Directors and now is a reality”.
