Mexico City, Mexico — The Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) has begun the 2024 Recruitment and Hiring Conference for Medical Specialists. The specialists are being recruited for 2,947 vacancies in 23 states.

The General Director of the Mexican Social Security Institute, Zoé Robledo Aburto, announced the start of the recruitment Tuesday. He says the hired doctors will be incorporated into the IMSS Wellbeing Health Plan, which has been implemented to serve people without social security.

The main specialties required are anesthesiology, general surgery, gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics and internal medicine. Doctors are also required for emergencies, neonatology, traumatology and orthopedics, psychiatry, intensive care, imaging, dermatology, ophthalmology, cardiology and pathological anatomy.

The Government of Mexico, through the IMSS Wellbeing Health Plan, rehabilitated 1,333 operating rooms in the country which were not in operation, although they were registered in the previous administration.

“The operating rooms not only have to be on paper, they have to be performing surgeries every day, both emergency surgeries, but also scheduled surgeries, surgeries that are planned in the health systems,” he said.
