Ukraine MD degree with Dutch Passport looking for Specialization/Job in Swiss?

Dear All,

I am completely new to here. I am a Dutch national with a medical degree from Ukraine. As my husband has a good job offer in Swiss, we would like to move to Switzerland. However, this entirely depends on my job prospects!

Are there any medical doctors with Ukraine (or non-EU medical degree) with EU-passport have any idea on how to get Specialization (any) in medicine or Job as a medical professional? Any suggestions are highly helpful to make a decision for our future.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You need to get in touch with the Swiss Red Cross, to see if they would recognise your qualifications. You need to speak German/French/Italian depending on where you are intending on living.

Re: Ukraine MD degree with Dutch Passport looking for Specialization/Job in Swiss?

In Switzerland, two fields of medicine have huge gaps: General practitioners (especially in rural areas), and geriatric doctors working in nursing homes. Especially for the latter, I know of a case where an Asian doctor was accepted even though it was not clear how identical his qualifications were with the Swiss ones... simply because despite adverts all over Switzerland and EU, no doctor could be found to take the post.

If you are willing to do this kind of work, you might find it more easily than other doctor's jobs, once you have tried to get the recognition which Island Monkey mentioned.
