Curaçao needs medical specialists

Sint Elizabeth HospitalWILLEMSTAD – There is a great shortage of medical specialists on the island. According to a report of the Ministry of Public Health, there are already 24 vacancies for medical medical specialists. This problem is even more serious now because of the aging population.

The problem is not only with the population, but also the aging of the active physicians.

The Ministry is seeking neurologists, urologists, pulmonologists, ophthalmologists and pediatricians. Not only in the Netherlands, but recently also in Latin America, Colombia, Venezuela, Costa Rica and Cuba.
