Primary Care in Romania

Primary Care in Romania


Macrina Florescu, MD

Fall 2006 - Volume 10 Number 3

To become a general practitioner, after I had graduated the Gr T Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Iasi, Romania and became an MD, I passed the national examination to enter general practice residency in June 1999. I then studied and worked as a resident physician for three years in big university hospitals in the following specialties: surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, dermatology, internal medicine, infectious diseases, obstetrics and gynecology, and one year in an urban primary health care unit (dispensary) for adults and children. After every stage I had a written examination and a practical examination. During certain stages (pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology) I even worked as an "on-duty" physician, and during the surgery stage I also worked in the emergency room where I became accustomed to diagnosis and treatment of emergencies.
