“Sponsor a Resident”
Welcome to the team of sponsors of the “Sponsor a Resident” program , managed by the local delegation of United Doctors of Venezuela in France. The various international delegations of United Doctors of Venezuela created this initiative in view of the exceedingly precarious economic and labor situation faced by postgraduate medical students in Venezuela.
Due to the massive emigration of medical staff that has afflicted our country, a large part of the medical work in Venezuelan hospitals now falls on these students’ shoulders. The extremely vulnerable situation in which most of them find themselves (the salary of a resident is less than 5 euros) frequently forces them to abandon their studies, often just before graduating. This is why your contribution is essential.
