This article was exclusively written for The European Sting by Mr. Eobitov Izzatullo, a student of 4th grade of Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute, Uzbekistan. He is affiliated to the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA), cordial partner of The Sting. The opinions expressed in this piece belong to the writer and do not necessarily reflect IFMSA’s view on the topic, nor The European Sting’s one.


We are curiously moving into the Future and every aspect of medicine is changing every day. When I check my emails, I receive tons of medicine news from around the world  like “in USA, a face transplant operation was made, which saved a young girl’s life” or “first genetically modified twins were born in China”, even “in Kazakhstan, the first hybrid heart surgery were made successfully”.

All these news seems to be from science fiction, however this is the reality of the 21st  century. And as a 4th course student of Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute, these news motivate, inspire, and pushing me forward to make my dream come true – “Scalpel, please!”

By choosing this challenging profession as surgeon, I really have passion and my own reasons. I just want to share my first medical summer experience, which was took a place in a family clinic. I was so excited about it. The night before I was a bit nervous and still excited, did all my preparations: uniform, packed my textbook and pens, as a young doctor from Bulgakov’s stories.

The next day, I found myself standing in front of the doctor’s office, with a huge amount of people arguing. Just imagine this picture: patients waiting, doctors who were busy with shelves of paper work and documents, endless amount of writings, irritating right?

Dead circle, during the medical counseling, the doctor’s gaze was “separated” into two: he had to inspect the patient and check his outpatient card, the patient, the card, and again around. At the end of the day, my supervising Doctor told me “if you like paper work more than saving lives, then a primary healthcare, exactly the right place for you” This words stocked in my head.

I truly believe that Ministry of Healthcare should pay attention to this fact, because it provides a huge repulsive impact on the impression of the primary healthcare. I think that the main objectives of the primary healthcare should not be only paper work and reports but first of all patient’s health. It all began with the new technology that changed the way we record and share data, and healthcare providers wasted no time in seizing this opportunity to improve the delivery of healthcare.

Another point is a salary. As primary healthcare providers in my country is not satisfied with that “the salary does not fit the amount of work we do” they says. As My opinion Government should provide doctors with a proper salary.  This will truly motivate young people to start working in primary health-care centers.

However, despite these facts the workers of the primary healthcare continue to work and do their best. Moreover, some amount of young people still desire to get a job in primary healthcare contrary these obstacles, and understand that the primary healthcare is very important. We should be proud of the people because they put a big amount of effort in order to do their job, as president of IFMSA Batool Al-Wahdani on the Global Conference on Primary Healthcare in Astana, Kazakhstan stated «definitely primary healthcare cannot exist without younger generation, … not only because they are the future of primary healthcare, but most importantly it’s most promising present».
