In June 2001, in Warsaw a Country--wide Conference "Doctors' Specializations" took place, which was attended by representatives of 11 medical academies, 20 institutes of the health department and 50 scientific societies. As a result a position was taken which clearly stated that general availability of doctors' specializations, standardisation of qualification and recruitment system, allocation of limits of positions granted to particular specialities as well as (unification) of the accreditation rules for the people authorised to run training are a necessity. Introduction of a "register of natural shifts of specialists", actualisation of specialisation programmes and decentralisation of the doctors' specialising process were also postulated. The Ministry of Health recognized the opinion of the Conference as an environmental consultation and took the above mentioned postulates into consideration in the revised Decree of the Minister of Health concerning specializations of doctors and stomatologists. The new regulations guarantee doctors common availability of postgraduate education, including doctors' specializations, introduce a uniform system of qualification and recruitment of doctors as well as accreditation of trainers. Also the problem of specializations made by private medical practitioners was dealt with. Presenting the content of the Position we would like to emphasize the role and significance of environmental consultation in the creation of legal regulations. It is also pointed out that doctors' associations should join in the preparation of "registers of specialists" and scientific societies should help in updating the syllabus. The Ministry of Health has got an extremely important task of coordinating the initiatives taken in this respect by the (doctors') circles.
