Unfavorable climatic and environmental conditions in the region lead to a steady increase in the incidence of medical workers. The state of health of 4062 people, medical and non-medical personnel of health care institutions located in the European North of Russia was studied. The results of the study showed that the total incidence of medical workers was 1990.4 cases per 1000 people, with respiratory diseases in health workers occupy a leading position, and 45-49% of the surveyed persons have chronic diseases, which is significantly higher than that in non-medical workers. The health status of medical workers was assessed in age and experience groups, as well as the analysis of the frequency of occurrence of classes of diseases. The surveyed noted the deterioration of their health, linking it with the nature of their work. The results of the study indicate that the work of medical workers in the European North of Russia should be considered as an additional risk factor for chronic diseases due to the influence of a wide range of production factors.
