Christophe Robino meets with medical and pharmacy students
The annual meeting of the Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Christophe Robino, with students and house officers in medicine and pharmacy took place on Thursday 7 September.
At Mr Robino’s wishes, the meeting was timed to coincide with France’s national recruitment campaign for students who sat national medical examinations (ECNi) in 2023, and prior to the first ‘Monaco for Employment’ forum, in which Princess Grace Hospital will take part.
This meeting, with second- to sixth-year students in medicine, medical house officers and future pharmacists, is aimed at raising awareness about medical and pharmaceutical specialities which are or will be expanding in the Principality over the coming years, in both private practices and hospitals in the country, not forgetting the vital medical posts within government departments.
The Minister spoke, in person and virtually, to medical and pharmacy students in the Principality and invited them to join in discussions with representatives from the Council of the Order of Doctors, the Council of the Order of Chemists, the management team at Princess Grace Hospital, the Department of Health Affairs and the Committee for Graduate Employment to learn more about current healthcare provision and future needs in the Principality.
Mr Christophe Robino concluded the encounter by recalling that “the sustainability and excellence of our healthcare system depends on the recruitment of professionals who are trained and prepared to practise in our hospitals and private practices. Supporting our students in their studies is therefore essential”.
