Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

Hello everyone,

I hope that you could help me. I am a dentist with a diploma of a Greek university and I am interested in completing a master in Switzerland. The problem is that swiss universities especially in the medical field don't accept easily foreign students. I have read that a foreign student has the right to apply if he/she lives permanently in Switzerland, specifically, as they say, if he/she is "eine/ein in der Schweiz niedergelassene Ausländerin und Ausländer", or if she/he lives in Switzerland and has a work license for 5 years ("Ausländer mit Wohnsitz in der Schweiz, die seit mindestens fünf Jahren im Besitze einer schweizerischen Arbeitsbewilligung sind"). My question is what is the difference between the two categories. A person who lives and works for 2-3 years in Switzerland does not count as a permanent resident of Switzerland? And how many years do you have to live in Switzerland so as to be counted as a permanent resident?

I would be grateful if you could help me.

Re: Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

Thank you very much! This means that practically if you belong to the second category with the 5 years of residence and work you also belong to the first category with permanent residence, right?

Re: Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

It's actually laid out here:

International Student Admissions

In accordance with a Recommendation of the Swiss University Conference of 12 October 2006, some categories of international students (i.e. foreign nationals) hold the same status as Swiss nationals applying to medical school:

1. The following persons applying for admission to medical school receive equal treatment to Swiss nationals:

a) Citizens of the Principality of Liechenstein;

b) Foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland or Liechenstein;

c) Foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland whose parents are domiciled in Switzerland;

d) Foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland who are married to a Swiss citizen, or whose spouse has been domiciled in Switzerland for a minimum of five years, or who has held a Swiss work permit for a minimum of five years;

e) Foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland who have held a Swiss work permit for a minimum of five years, or foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland whose parents have held a Swiss work permit for a minimum of five years;

f) Foreign nationals domiciled in Switzerland who hold either a federal, cantonal, or a federally recognised academic baccalaureate (Matura) (in accordance with the Federal Academic Baccalaureate Recognition Ordinance of 15 February 1995 and the Federal Academic Baccalaureate Recognition Regulations of 16 January 1995), or who have completed a Federal Vocational Baccalaureate as well as passed their supplementary examinations (in accordance with the Vocational Baccalaureate Recognition Ordinance for University Admissions of 19 December 2003);

g) Children domiciled in Switzerland whose parents are domiciled in Switzerland and who are citizens of a member state of the European Union (EU), provided they have not reached the age of 21 or who are granted child benefit (in accordance with the EU-Swiss Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons, Appendix 1, Art. 3 §6);

h) Children whose parents hold diplomatic status in Switzerland;

i) Recognised refugees resident in Switzerland.

Re: Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

You would need to get your qualifications recognised to work here:

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

Contact:
Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)
MEBEKO
CH-3003 Bern
T +41 31 322 94 83

MEBEKO-Ausbildung@bag.admin.ch

Whether you'd need to also meet any language requirements as a dentist I don't know.

Re: Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

hi alex

I am a dentist from a non EU country. My husband gets an admission for a PhD position in Laussane. It will take 5 to 6 years for him to finish his PhD. I would like to continue my education in the mean time but it looks difficult. It seems that you get a work permit, I really appreciate if you guide me on this. Could I get a work permit considering I have got my degree outside EU and where I should apply for that?

Best regards,
Mojde

Options for a Non-EU dentist

Hi everybody

I am a dentist from a non EU country. My husband gets an admission for a PhD position in Laussane. It will take 5 to 6 years for him to finish his PhD. I would like to do something related to my education in the mean time.

I did a little search and it looks too difficult to get a position for a specialization on a dental school. The other option is to get a work permit, but it seems that I have little chance in here too since my studies is not in German, French or Italian.

I would really appreciate if someone could guide me on this. Is there any 1 to 2 year program for foreign trained dentists so they could get a work permit? Is there any other option for me? I don't care that much about the salary, I just want to have something to do in order to be in touch with the job I have trained for.

Best regards,
Mojde

Re: Options for a Non-EU dentist

OP,

IMO it would make sense to post this query as a followup to your other post made on the same subject rather than starting a new thread about it. Multiple threads relating to the same issue can cause people to overlook some parts.

Re: Master degree in dentistry in a swiss university

As said in the other thread Mullhollander provided it's really not possible without you going back to uni and requalifying I'm afraid. Nor do I think you could do this in Switzerland, even if you spoke a Swiss language, because medicine, veterinary, sports science, etc, are subjects that are restricted to people born in Switzerland/Lichtenstein or who have lived here for some years. I assume that dentristy will come under this restriction.
