Tehran, Sept 2, IRNA - Some 3,500 physicians graduate in Iran each year, said head of Iran's Association of General Medicine Graduates.
Speaking to IRNA on Tuesday, Saeed Taamoli added that most of the people who are facing employment problems, are not prepared to work in areas lacking suitable facilities.
Stating that there are 170,000 physicians who have obtained authorization from Medical Registration Organization, he said that currently, 72,000 general practitioners and 28,000 specialists are out of work.
Iranians usually refer to the specialists rather than general practitioners when they get sick, he said, adding that the latter face financial problems.
