On the background of the growing number of foreign professionals with a medical background willing to work in Russia, the number of migrants in pharmaceutical education remains stable. Medical institutions are attracting foreigners high salaries, pharmacy organizations are unable to provide the foreign partrabotnikov competitive salaries.
The number of foreign medical personnel wishing to work in Russia has tripled over the past four years. The head of Roszdravnadzor Mikhail Murashko said in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
He said go to the doctors in different fields – therapists, dentists, ophthalmologists, cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons. In 2017, the number of such applications increased almost three times compared with 2013 year and amounted to 10 thousand.
The number of migrants in pharmaceutical education, from year to year remains stable.
“Several pharmacy organizations, foreigners from former USSR countries, but to say that their number is growing near arched, I can’t, – told the correspondent of “FV” Executive Director of the National pharmaceutical chamber Elena Nevolina. – Such phenomena as in medicine, when the clinics entire staff of physicians can consist of people from countries of the former USSR, is not observed. And hardly will occur in the future, salaries of pharmacy organizations is not so attractive.”
According to Elena Nevolin, often foreigners, workers of drugstores, can be found in the border areas, many come to work “in shifts”. It is not always the border area are interested in the frames from neighboring countries. So in Omsk, where it is logical to expect the inflow of workers from Kazakhstan, has its own University, which prepares specialists, and problems with the staff no, on the contrary, there is oversupply. The situation is similar in Pyatigorsk.
In Moscow have an interest in HR, but plenty of financial difficulties. Thus, wages in the retail segment in the capital and the regions, in fact, equal. If there is a difference in 10 – 20% in favor of Moscow, the housing and the cost of the food basket is much higher than in the regions.
Do not go to foreigners in those regions where the strongest staff shortages.
“Severe staffing situation on Sakhalin and in Yakutia, where the existing pharmacy employees have long exceeded the retirement age but cannot retire because there is no inflow of young specialists. Unfortunately, these regions do not go to work neither the Russians nor foreigners,” – sums up the expert.
