Abstract

The purpose of the study: to assess the degree of availability of medical personnel in the field of traumatology and orthopedics in Kazakhstan.

Methods. In this work, an analysis was made of the number of orthopedic traumatologists in Kazakhstan for 2019-2020. A comparative analysis of the indicators of the number and traumatologists-orthopedists by region was carried out.

Results. A low availability of orthopedic traumatologists was revealed in a number of regions of Kazakhstan: in 2020, in Atyrau, Mangystau regions and in the West Kazakhstan region, the number of orthopedic traumatologists was 0.3 per 10 thousand of the population. In the Kyzylorda region, this indicator was 0.4 per 10 thousand people. The highest rates of the number of traumatologists-orthopedists are observed in the cities of Almaty and Nur-Sultan.

Conclusion.There is a significant uneven distribution of specialists in the field of traumatology and orthopedics in the regions of Kazakhstan. To address the issue of lack and uneven distribution of human resources in the field of traumatology and orthopedics, it is necessary to improve the system of training, distribution and remuneration of traumatologists-orthopedists in Kazakhstan.
