Spain to ensure doctors are innovation-ready
This article was originally published in Clinica
In order to ensure that the accreditation of Spanish doctors keeps pace with technical innovations, the country's top scientific associations have united to develop a unified training programme. Known as "Proyecto ARA", nine associations are drafting a framework based on the technical requirements that doctors face in each of their specialisms. These are: family and community medicine (SemFYC) - a vocal exponent of extending homecare and, as a result, point-of-care diagnostics and e-health; internal medicine (SEMI); pneumology and thoracic surgery (SEPAR); neurology (SEN); nephrology; trauma (SECOT); radiology (SERAM); surgery (AEC); and geriatrics (SEGG). Their recommendations are due to be presented to the regional healthcare authorities, which are responsible for establishing health service standards, by the end of September.
