At the beginning of 2013 the Vocational Training Centre at Medical University - Varna launched training in the new professions: Healthcare Assistant and Caregiver. The Centre has a License from December 2012, issued by the President of the National Agency for Vocational Education and Training at the Council of Ministers. At the end of 2013 the training of the first students in the new profession Assistant to the Doctor of Dental Medicine will be launched here.
The team of Medical University- Varna and "St. Marina" University Hospital stands behind the initiative the Bulgarian state to formally recognize and enter the two professions in the List of Professions in December 2010. Prestigious, well-paid and with a long-standing tradition in a number of countries around the world, the profession of Healthcare assistant, however, has to gain ground in our country and achieve still greater social and health significance.
