Single access list Medicine. This is a proposal that the deans have defended for years, including the representative of Salamanca, Joseph Carterand now the students are joining. He State Council of Medical Students It aims to restructure the system for granting access to the most sought-after degree in the country, so that there is a single list for all state faculties in this area. This measure, according to students, will solve one of the main problems faced by young people who want to study medicine: many do not get into the first lists and are forced to enter other specialties or universities, and in many cases, when they get access to medical career, the course has already begun, so they are at a disadvantage compared to their peers.
For many years, the deans have proposed to transfer to the faculties a place selection system similar to the one that allows the allocation of specialties after the MIR exam, so that students know from the first moment whether they can enter the medical faculty and which university.
In order to somehow speed up enrollment, this year the government of Castile and León agreed with the universities of Salamanca and Valladolid to postpone the third and final list of admissions to a degree with limited places that were previously issued in September to July. It’s too early to tell if the measure has worked, as dean charro pointed out, we’ll have to wait until September to see what happens when universities in other Autonomous Communities release their enrollment lists. “So far so good, but we will see if there will be resignations at the beginning of September,” comments José Carretero and adds that on September 5 they will definitely submit an “appeal” to fill the vacancies among the students who applied should be on the waiting list .
This year, despite an increase in the number of new admission places across the country, the threshold for access to medicine at the University of Salamanca remained at 13,132, only a few tenths less than last year (13,200), and in the beginning was higher (13,263 compared to up to 13,255), reflecting the high level of competitiveness among students wishing to become doctors.
