Hospitals advertise vacancies, seeking anaesthesiologists in particular

The crisis in the Slovak public health-care system, after more than one thousand doctors left their jobs on December 1 as part of a labour dispute, is causing ripples in the labour market. In particular, state-run hospitals are advertising large numbers of vacancies. The jobs website Kariéra.sk was offering 1,215 medical jobs on December 1, said Zuzana Kačírová of Zoznam, which operates the site, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

"Analyses of the positions offered implies that the most sought-after doctors are anaesthesiologists and surgeons,” Kačírová said. The largest number of vacancies is at Bratislava University Hospital, she added, and at Trenčín Teaching Hospital. “The jobs offered show that out of all 50 hospitals, only one is not looking for doctors,” Kačírová concluded. On average, each hospital would like to hire almost 25 doctors. The largest number of vacancies – 411 – is being advertised by the University Hospital in Bratislava, followed by the hospital in Trenčín, which is seeking 135 doctors, and the Teaching Hospital in Žilina, which needs 98 doctors.
