The deadline is also valid for requests for specialized assistance. Clinical skills tests will be applied on December 18th and 19th. To participate in the second stage, which is a practical exam, it is necessary to have passed the first stage, which included the objective and discursive tests. The final results of this last phase were released on Friday (19).
Revalida 2020 participants who pass the theoretical test and fail in practice will also be able to enroll in this second stage of Revalida 2021 and continue the exam.
Altogether, there are 7,280 available places, distributed among the 22 cities of application: Aracaju (SE), Belém (PA), Belo Horizonte (MG), Brasília (DF), Campina Grande (PB), Campo Grande (MS), Curitiba (PR), Fortaleza (CE), Florianópolis (SC), Goiânia (GO), João Pessoa (PB), Maceió (AL), Manaus (AM), Niterói (RJ), Pelotas (RS), Porto Alegre (RS) , Salvador (BA), São Luís (MA), São Paulo (SP), Santa Maria (RS), Teresina (PI) and Uberlândia (MG).
The exam is structured by a set of ten stations, which will be covered over the two days of tests, in which the doctors will have to carry out specific tasks in the determined areas. This can include investigation of clinical history, interpretation of tests, formulation of diagnostic hypotheses, demonstration of medical procedures, counseling to patients or family members, among others.
The participant approved in this stage will be able to proceed with the apostille of the revalidation of the medical degree with one of the partner universities of the exam. After the disclosure of the final result, the list of institutions will be made available in the System
If the participant fails the second stage, he can re-enroll directly in it, for the next two editions of the exam. Revalida Applied by Inep since 2011, Revalida seeks to subsidize the revalidation, in Brazil, of the graduation diploma in medicine issued abroad. The exam consists of two stages (theoretical and practical) that address, in an interdisciplinary way, the five major areas of medicine: clinical medicine, surgery, gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics and family and community medicine (collective health).
