AMMAN — Prime Minister Omar Razzaz on Thursday announced that the government approved accepting all applicants for the resident doctors and dentists course before September 7, 2018.

During a meeting with councils of health associations at the Prime Ministry, Razzaz also gave directives to fill the vacant positions of retirees, applicants who refused jobs, and employees on a leave.

The directives came to address the shortage of doctors and nurses, giving priority to the graduates of 2012 and 2013 who passed the job application test, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The premier also directed changing the allowances system, increasing the allocated budgets and linking them to the performance of cadres in 2019.

He noted that the government is working on the improvement of the heath sector in a comprehensive manner to provide better services to residents in accordance with the Royal letter of designation.

The meeting, which was attended by Health Minister Mahmoud Sheyyab and Minister of Political and Parliamentary Affairs Musa Maaytah, also covered the government's keenness on dealing with all issues that challenge the sector and its users.

Razzaz asked for referring the names of doctors who passed the residency exams but failed on the board exam to the Prime Ministry to take the suitable measures. 

For doctors who studied abroad before 2001, Razzaz said that the government will consider their legal status through the Legislation and Opinion Bureau, stressing the government's openness to all suggestions and demands in this regard.
