Finance Minister Mohamed Maait said on Thursday 02/04/2020 that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi directed increasing monthly allowance of medical interns at university hospitals from EGP 400 to 2,200.
The decision will be applicable on the 2019 graduates of the Faculty of Medicine of universities across the country.
In press statements, Maait said 12,000 interns will benefit from the decision in a bid to improve health services offered to the public nationwide.
