Pharmacy diploma from non EU countries-->eidgenössische diploma von MEBEKO

Hi guys,

I have not seen anything related to this subject. But is anybody here who has a pharmacy diploma from non-EU countries and filed for eidgenössisches Diploma in MEBEKO?

And what is up with that statement that all diplomas that are not directly recognized in Switzerland should be registered by MEBEKO(of course with a hefty fee of between 800-1200Fr)

Any advice you guys?

Feel free also to send me a pm.

Looking forward to chating with you guys on this subject.

"What is a recognition certificate and when do I need one?
Recognition certificates confirm that the foreign qualification is equivalent to a corresponding Swiss qualification. If you hold a qualification for an occupation or profession that can only legally be carried out by holders of a specific Swiss qualification or title (i.e. a regulated occupation or profession), then you will need to obtain a recognition certificate."

Pharmacy is a regulated profession here so of course non-Swiss diplomas have to be recognised before you can take up such a position. And the fee sounds cheap; iirc to get recognition as nurse can cost around 3,000.

It is not a problem that it is a regulated profession. I understand that. My question goes to the fact has anybody done that with diploma that is not even from EU country which cant be recognised directly.
And that fee is only registration of diploma to MEBEKO without it being recognised ( it is to have it in register of all unrecognised diplomas of pharmacy)

As the link says.

I just want to know has anybody had experience with it.

Hi,

I have not done that yet. Seriously looking for more Info but obviously nobody is really willing to share. And I do not know why

I do not know what to expect as having a non-EU diploma.

So if you have any additional info, looking forward to them.

What other information do you need? MF gave you the link and that describes what needs to be done.

More likely that no-one HAS more information... i.e. no non-EU pharmacy person who has gone through the process has read this post.

A non-EU diploma in pharmacy cannot be recognized in Switzerland. See here (German):

https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/de/home...b-eu-efta.html

If you want to work as a pharmacist, your only option seems to be getting a Swiss masters degree in pharmacy and taking the federal exam afterwards (German):

https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/de/home...pharmazie.html

The registration of diplomas that cannot be recognized only applies to those medical professionals who actually exercise the profession in Switzerland. Either because they got a (cantonal) permission to do so without a federal recognition (might have been possible in the past) or because they are employed in a setting where no recognition is/was necessary. Both cases likely apply to doctors rather than pharmacists. The federal authorities simply want to keep track of the people, this has nothing to do with your ability to actually find (or be allowed to) work.

The list of non-recognized diplomas is rather short, see here:
https://www.bag.admin.ch/dam/bag/de/...5032018-de.pdf

There is precisely one pharmacist on the list.
