The election date for MIR positions is approaching. within a few weeks, Health calculates that it will be after Easterabout 8,500 medical graduates They will have to choose which specialization they will do and where they want to develop their training. Although selection is based on multiple conditions, each year expectations center on what will be the first choice. The places in the public centers are much more numerous than those offered in the private ones, but it is with private health that they expect that their first number is soon about to decline.
Nicholas Garciadirector of medical care at Clínica Universidad de Navarra in Pamplona, insists that behind this choice there is The sum of factors, such as the quality of the positionbut also proximity to loved ones, resources and innovation.

Which is why the first person has chosen public health on many occasions, “it makes sense, by pure statistics.” However, he does not rule out that the number one will soon choose to do his specialized health training in private centers: “It is quite possible, It can happen on the next or next call Because today Quality health training can be in special centersAt least as high as it gets general“.

There are issues added when it comes to attracting future residents, such as Research and commitment to technology. At the hospital where García works, teaching and research capabilities stand out. It is a university center that stands out for its applied clinical research, which it considers “very important”.
“These resources are also available for our specialized health training programmes. It is a quality for which candidates choose us because we are a center that has the facilities to enable us to You complete the health care and training activity of your specialty It matches the teaching and research resources we have that make it attractive.”
