Dear Beppe, I too, like Professor Nava, studied medicine in the years of overcrowding. In Bologna we were 1,200 in the first year and only 600 reached the finish line. But many without having seen a sick person. I had a decent career and as a primary I was able to see many young medical specialists, almost all with a high level of preparation, thanks in my opinion to the compulsory internships in the ward and also to the fact that they had been able to learn from the sick bed. And not just in books like in my day. I saw my daughter’s course of study, she too was a doctor, and she didn’t look anything like mine. The problem is not the limited number, which guarantees a certain selection right from the start, but the fact that adequate planning of the number of specialists has not been made. It seems that now they have filled the gap. Hopefully, it will take 4-5 years before we see the effects.
Professor Nava’s letter is here.
