The shortage of doctors affects the training in thoracic surgery in Coimbra Health

The ability to train new doctors in thoracic surgery at the University of Coimbra’s hospitals may be compromised due to the lack of specialist doctors. “There is a serious shortage of doctors. It’s a topic that has existed for several years, ”says José Carlos Almeida, Regional Secretary of the Center for the Independent Medical Association (SIM). The problem is already being analyzed by the Ordem dos Médicos University of Applied Sciences, which will visit the center on Thursday to assess the formative adequacy of the hospital and the University Center of Coimbra (CHUC) on the matter.
