    La Agencia de Andaluca explica en Zaragoza la evaluacin del profesorado contratado doctor con vinculacin clnica

    El pasado da 21 de enero, en la Sala de Grados de la Facultad de Medicina tuvo lugar una nueva sesin de los Seminarios ACPUA de Calidad Universitaria. En esta ocasin, y ante un auditorio que llen la sala, Francisco Gracia, Director de Evaluacin y Acreditacin de la Agencia Andaluza del Conocimiento y catedrtico de Biologa Celular con amplia experiencia investigadora y de gestin en el mbito biomdico (ha sido, entre otros relevantes cargos, Secretario General de Universidades e Investigacin de la Junta de Andaluca y Director del Instituto de Salud Carlos III), explic la gnesis, puesta en marcha, desarrollo y resultados de la evaluacin de la nueva figura del profesorado contratado doctor con vinculacin al sistema sanitario de Andaluca. Esta explicacin fue enriquecida con informacin de primera mano sobre el nuevo Programa Mara Castellano Arroyo de la Junta de Andaluca, el cual desea incentivar entre los residentes la carrera hacia su acreditacin como contratado doctor vinculado mediante un interesante sistema de contratacin previa.

    La Comunidad Autnoma de Andaluca ha sido pionera en la puesta en marcha de este tipo de medidas, encaminadas a mejorar la difcil situacin en la que se hallan las plantillas del profesorado de las Facultades de Medicina. La celebracin de este seminario ACPUA resultaba especialmente oportuna dado que en Aragn se acaba de implementar legalmente esta nueva figura de profesorado (Decreto 206/2018, de 21 de noviembre, del Gobierno de Aragn, BOA de 29 de noviembre), la cual va a exigir de los futuros contratados doctores con vinculacin clnica disponer de una evaluacin previa positiva por parte de la ACPUA.

    Esta actividad es el fruto adems de la estrecha y rica cooperacin existente entre las agencias de Andaluca (DEVA-AAC) y Aragn (ACPUA), vinculadas formalmente entre ellas por un fructfero Convenio de colaboracin.
