MÉRIDA, Yuc.- In Yucatan, Some medicine interns are conditioned to attend to the various health centers and clinics of the entity in exchange for granting the administrative requirements corresponding to the titling processes.

Therefore, the Assembly of Medical Interns of the Yucatan Social Service issued a declaration to the Executive Power of the State, to the Authorities of the UADY Faculty of Medicine and to the Health Secretariat of Yucatan (SSY) about the threats from the Department of teaching of health institutions regarding the refusal to deliver release letters or documents.

He also asked the Yucatecan authorities to guarantee the right to health and education for undergraduate internal doctors and social service interns from the entity’s medical degree.
