The President of Bashkiria Rustem Khamitov offers to attract young medics for working in the country with cars and cottages. He commented the expediency of such measure on Thursday during the inspection of the site for construction of a new block of the central clinical hospital in the village MESYAGUTOVO. This medical institution urgently needs new specialists as well as many other rural hospitals. Every year several young people leave the village to enter the Bashkir State Medical University but just few of them come back. The majority of the graduates stay either in Ufa or in other big cities and this striving is quite clear – they have more opportunities to climb the ladder and to earn more in the cities.

“In order to return our young people to the villages we have to give them what the majority of people need most of all for today – housing and transport” – Rustem Khamitov stated – “The Republic can afford itself the sum about two million rubles – it is quite enough to provide a specialist with a car and a house”.

In opinion of the President RB such measures are necessary not only for the medics but for other young specialists too and such programs are already launched in other Russian regions.
