Number limits on medicine courses set to be scrapped

Number limits on medicine courses set to be scrapped

Move criticized by physicians guild

ROME, 24 April 2024, 14:22

ANSA English Desk



A Senate education panel on Wednesday approved a text that seeks to stop universities from setting limits on the number of students they admit to medicine degree courses.
    The president of the committee, League lawmaker Roberto Marti, said backing for the proposal was almost unanimous.
    "Intense work lead to the maximum level of agreement among all the political parties," said Marti, adding that this was a pledge the League had made in its election manifesto "So we will offer our young people the opportunity to freely enroll for the faculties of Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine and start a path that will allow them to have the time to find their way in the university world.
    "Students will also have the opportunity to verify their vocation and demonstrate the skills acquired through the study of the basic subjects of these degree courses".
    Filippo Anelli, the president of the federation of Italian doctor and dentist guilds (Fnomceo), criticized the move.
    "We are clearly against it," Anelli told ANSA.
    "This is absolutely not a sensible rule.
    "Scrapping the number limit for medicine courses means that in 10 years, the time it takes to train a doctor, we will have a plethora of graduates who have no chance of finding jobs as doctors.
    "We will only produce unemployed people."
