The “Ukrainian medical
union” long with the company “Medivip” has started the program of getting
medical specialists back to Ukraine. The first step was the returning
of radiologist Oleksiy Vitte, who arrived yesterday in Ukraine from Libya.
Deputy Director of the
staff department of the Health Ministry Oleksandr Volosovetsk said that Ukraine lacks top-skilled professionals,
about 48 thousand doctors, including 300 children's doctors. “All this pushed
the company “Medivip” to seek for specialists abroad.
According to Volosovetsk,
first they looked for foreign top-skilled professionals to work in Ukraine. “But why? We can find Ukrainians working abroad. In every second country there is a doctor with
Ukrainian diploma,” he said.
Vitte, the first doctor,
who returned to Ukraine, informed that even after making
the contract with “Medivip” he would not break contracts with foreign
companies, which provides for work in Libya, Africa and Afganistan, as he was not sure
the perspective for him in Ukraine was optimistic.
“Medivip” is developing. It
has centers in Brovary, Sumy regions, Konotop. The President of
the company Vasyl Danatsko notes that Ukraine has problems with top-skilled
professionals and with operating modern equipment. According to him, it happens
that having got new equipment doctors don’t know how to use it.
“Ukrainian medical union” presidium
member Volodymyr Zahorodny informed that “situation concerning doctors is
politically grounded, and it is time to separate medicine from politics once
and for all.”
