VASCONCELOS, Fernanda Gaspar Antonini  and  ZANIBONI, Marilu Ramos Gonçalves. Difficulties of medical working at the family health program. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2011, vol.16, suppl.1, pp.1497-1504. ISSN 1678-4561.

This study aims to identify the profile of doctors who act or acted in PSF, its main difficulties and raise the percentage of teams of family health without doctor in the city of São Paulo. For this was used a questionnaire based on keywords of the study of Capozzolo collected from January to May 2008, and data of the Primary Care from October until December 2007. The main results include a time less than 5 years of training for most of the interviewees and affinity by the PSF as motivation for work. Some of the main difficulties are the high demand, high incidence of complex cases, difficulty of listings, profile division of time is not consistent with health needs and lack of incentive to specialization. The figures for Primary Care demonstrated that the coordination East had the highest absence of experienced doctors in the period analyzed, with rates around 20 to 40%, the existence of an increase in the deficit as the end of the year gets close and the maintenance of deficits in some units.

Keywords : Family Health Program; Public health; Primary health care.
