- From September 27 to 29, the ENARM 2022 was applied and there were just over 49 thousand young people who registered.
- During the three days there were strong security measures outside and inside the venues, although no serious incidents were reported.
- The results with the selected pages will be published in November in the CIFRHS website Although there is no definite date yet.
The most anticipated and feared date for thousands of young people has finally arrived. It is the application of National Examination of Applicants for Medical Residencies (ENARM) 2022. From September 27 to 29, this necessary process was carried out to choose the general doctors who will be the future residents.
All security measures at the venues
Broadly speaking, the test was carried out without incident. Although, as in past editions, there was a strong security device in each of the national headquarters. The main objective is always to ensure that there are fraudulent and illegal activities.
To begin with, since revenues were placed metal detectors, closed-circuit video surveillance cameras and restricted internet access.
At the same time, to enter the formulation complex there were security filters such as fingerprint recognition and biometric key. In addition, the entry of cell phones, smart watches, electronic or storage devices was prohibited.
Based on the statistics they signed up 49 thousand 802 female doctors and general practitioners, as well as 880 for the National Examination of Applicants to Dentistry Residencies (ENARE). Although it is estimated that there will only be around 20 thousand places. Therefore, more than half are not going to achieve their dream of being specialists, at least in this edition.
Story of an intern who presented the ENARM 2022
Now, after the days of application of the ENRM 2022 now is the time to get to know the first impressions of the young people who presented it. Such is the case of carla de los santoswho through social networks recounted his experience.
He bluntly said it was “unpleasant” and also offered his reasons. In his case, he points out that the last 50 items were answered randomly out of desperation and pressure. Having to spend six hours in one place without the possibility of eating or at least having a break is quite overwhelming.
The ENARM is not suitable for the anxious, I answered the last 50 questions randomly out of desperation to get out of that place, it is frustrating to sit in one place for 6 hours without eating or having a break, going to the bathroom is not enough. An unpleasant experience.

Similarly, the pressure to which thousands of young people are exposed harms them emotionally. To date, the thought persists that all general practitioners are obliged to become specialists. If not, they are simply not worth it or are doomed to failure.
In this sense, experience has shown that this is not the case because first contact doctors are just as important as the rest. This is the staff responsible for dealing with most cases.
At the same time, it should also be noted that the ENARM is not the only path that can be followed upon completion of basic training. There are also master’s degrees, seminars, workshops and doctorates. All of them have official validity and are useful to be able to access better jobs.
While another alternative is study abroad. Each country has its own requirements to be a resident and in most of them young people are not subjected to this type of pressure.
The greatest specialists affirm that before the ENARM was “more difficult”
However, the publication of the intern de los Santos has also provoked criticism, especially from specialists of older ages. Some people consider that Now the test is easier than in the past.
Until a few years ago the ENARM consisted of nearly 500 items and lasted all day with only one break to eat. While until before 2019 only two out of 10 applicants got a place because the places were even more limited.
