Additional payments to medical students for the special working conditions and increased workload
To help shore up the frontlines and combat the spread of the novel coronavirus infection in the region, Vologda’s authorities turned to the region’s medical schools.
The Health Care Department of the Vologda Region instructed medical colleges to deploy students who have completed one or two years of study to local policlinics and hospitals for practical training.
In autumn Vologda’s regional authorities asked resident doctors in their first year or higher to help at hospitals in Vologda, Cherepovets and five districts of the Vologda Region.
240 medical students of Vologda, Cherepovets and Veliky Ustyug helping battle the COVID-19 outbreak will get a special payment (RUR 7,000) for their work starting from January 2021.
