Speciality training for foreign doctor/work as Assistenärzte

Hello all!
This is my first post sorry if it is a long one!

I am a Portuguese medical student, currently doing my last year in Lisbon. Me and my girlfriend (who has already finished her medical degree this year) are planning on doing our speciality training in a German-speaking country (Switzerland being our first option).

I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge on the current availability of positions in the german-speaking part of the country for Assistenärzte, considering we are foreigners (with B2-German, trying our best to get C1 ASAP). I've already read through some of the posts on this forum, which have already helped me a bit in understanding the current situation for the need of different specialities in Switzerland. I know they are in need of GPs. Is General Surgery a hard speciality to get into, as a foreigner? Also, any specific information for Zürich would be appreciated, as I have a brother who lives there (though he has limited knowledge on the subject of jobs for doctors).

Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the forum.

Just find a list of the hospitals in Zurich (www.local.ch) and then look at their employment sections on their websites. You can also look on these websites:

www.jobs.ch
www.jobup.ch

First though you need to get your qualifications recognised.

You are a doctor, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacist or chiropractor and would like to work in Switzerland?

Re: Speciality training for foreign doctor/work as Assistenärzte

Thank you for your answer Medea the websites you posted were very helpful.

I was wondering if there are any docs who did their specialities in SWZ, who could perhaps share their experience? Or if anyone knows about the current need for doctors in the country (a lot of forum posts/articles on the internet from 5 years ago mention a great need but the trend is that there are few such posts as of late).

GPs are in very short supply, particularly in the more rural parts of the country.

It looks like the Kantonspital in Luzern is in need of "Unterassistenten" in the Gynaecology department:

...and they are also looking for an Assistenzarzt for Neurology:

Good luck and keep studying German...
