In March 2022, the hospital will be for the first time be getting three recently graduated doctors who will train as internal medicine specialists.
The internists of the future can now train and qualify at the Clinica Nova Hospital.
Thanks to its hospital infrastructure and quality personnel, the hospital has been approved by the General Directorate of Quality and Health Education (DGCES) and the Federal Ministry of Health as a teaching hospital for residents studying Internal Medicine.
The hospital will open its doors to the first class of internists in March next year when it receives the first three doctors, who will be selected from the different universities in the country. They will train for four years as internists.
The residency and training at Hospital Clinica Nova will be endorsed academically by the University of Monterrey.
The Clinica Nova Hospital has all the equipment and trained personnel necessary for patient care.
“Being able to train residents will be a huge plus for the clinic as it grows. Firstly, it means that personnel involved in training these graduates will have to prepare better and be better professionals because they’ll have to lead by example,” explained Dr. David Soni, head of Internal Medicine and Medical Specialties of the Clinica Nova Hospital.
“The fact that we can provide specialized teaching automatically sets Nova apart, putting it in a different category of the hospital, one to which we didn’t previously have access. We’ll be benchmarked by organizations responsible for rating public and private hospitals.”
The DGCES is in charge of approving the hospital as a training center. Additionally, the Mexican Council of Internal Medicine has approved the inspection carried out at the Clinica Nova by the federal Ministry of Health.
"This Hospital Unit complies with the guidelines established in the Official Mexican Standard NOM-001-SSA3-2012 Health Education for the organization and operation of medical residences to receive and train resident physicians in the specialty of Internal Medicine," highlighted Ricardo Morales Carmona, director of the DGCES.
The hospital's health professionals meet the highest standards in terms of their clinical, academic and research experience.
The requirements for becoming a teaching hospital include having quality infrastructure, a robust academic plan, and quality healthcare staff.
On this last point, the hospital's health professionals meet the highest standards, as they are recognized for their clinical, academic, and research experience, according to Dr. María Elena Romero, coordinator of the Department of Teaching and Research at Clinica Nova Hospital.
“For Nova this is a major step forward as we’ll be responsible for teaching and forming the young professionals of the future. All the knowledge our experts are generating every day, and the entire Clinica Nova Hospital care model, will be transmitted to future generations so that they can apply these newfound skills as part of our patient care,” she commented.
The coordinator added that the residents will also be able to contribute to the research area of the hospital.
In the future, the plan is to qualify for residencies in geriatrics and endocrinology, as well as provide training in spinal surgery, to train more specialists.
In the next few days, the Clinica Nova Hospital will publish the call for doctors who graduated from any university in the country to apply to these residencies.
