BRUSSELS - June 7, 2023 - PRLog -- Junior doctors and postgraduate medical training systems are particularly vulnerable to poor workforce planning. As a transient workforce at the front line of acute health care, junior doctors are relied on to plug gaps in the understaffed and overstretched services left by poor workforce planning.

EJD General Assembly was held in Riga, Latvia for two days (26th and 27th of May). During the meeting the topic of recruitment and retention of junior doctors in medical deserts was addressed in a panel debate with representatives of the European Commission, Latvian Ministry of Health and national Junior Doctors' representatives.
Shortages of doctors and other health and care workers have reached a critical level in Europe. EJD has repeatedly warned about the impending consequences of the shortage of doctors in the continent. We have stressed the urgency of addressing this issue and have advocated for proactive measures to attract and retain talented medical professionals.
