Eight out of ten applicants are rejected.
How El País says it, behind the bottleneck and its deficiencies, of the obsessions and frustrations of those who present itthe lack of training and of the health system in Mexico is revealeda country that suffers from a lack of doctors and resources to care for the population and at the same time closes its doors to thousands of graduates who, in most cases, leave the country in search of opportunities, are in precarious jobs, or crash over and over again National Examination of Applicants for Medical Residencies (ENARM) until you pass it.
The biggest promise made last year is that 30,000 places would be offered in the ENARM. Is about the highest figure in history for medical specialties and with that practically half of the applicants would obtain a place to continue their professional training.
However, it was NOT like that and the reason for the abandonment of thousands of applicants is the reduction of places, since only around 17 thousand were opened.
NEXT ENRM 2022
Let’s hope that this year the exam happens without any errors. Since last year at least 200 general practitioners from different states: Mexico City, Jalisco, Yucatan, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Chihuahuawho reached the minimum score in the National Examination for Applicants to Medical Residencies, ENARM, to enter any of the 27 specialties available, with no explanation other than “an error in the system”, were left out of the list of doctors selected to obtain a place and be able to continue with their training.
“Several of us realized that despite having had a score equal to or greater than the minimum required (in Imaging, Diagnosis and Therapeutics, for example, 66 points were requested) we were not on the list of doctors selected to receive a place and enter to the specialty”, explained Omar Camacho to Excelsior, one of the affected doctors”.
