The lack of doctors is one of the problems that is most affecting the entire Spanish health sector. However, the data and especially the Human Resources studies indicate that It is not a global problem of all specialties medical but of some increasingly identified as Family medicine.

A meeting that also discussed the problem that generate the specialties that they currently have surplus but which continues to offer a perhaps excessive number of MIR squares. A reflection that these speakers combined with the need to prioritize the needs of the health system in Specialized Health Training (FSE).
