Vet contact

Please can someone put me in touch with a vet contact who speaks English. I am trying to establish if South African specialist vet qualifications are recognised in Switzerland.

Re: Vet contact

Welcome to the forum.

It's not a vet that you need to contact, but this organisation:

"Would you like to work in Switzerland as a doctor, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacist or chiropractor?

Contact:

Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)
MEBEKO
CH-3003 Bern
T +41 58 462 94 83

www.bag.admin.ch
MEBEKO-Ausbildung@bag.admin.ch"

https://www.sbfi.admin.ch/sbfi/en/ho...opractors.html

However, unless you speak a Swiss language I think you'll have trouble finding work here. You would have to be employed by a Swiss veterinary practice and they'll want people who can communicate in one or more Swiss languages, depending on where the practice is based. English is a bonus, but you won't be able to work here without knowing German, French or Italian depending on which part of the country you're looking to work in.

Btw if your username is your real name I'd ask a moderator to change it to something less obvious.

Re: Vet contact

Well, until a vet comes along...


Here is the Swiss Veterinary Association:
http://www.gstsvs.ch

This deals with recognition of foreign diplomas:
http://www.gstsvs.ch/de/weiter-und-f...r-diplome.html

Their website is only in German, French - but of course you will need fluency in local languages to practice veterinary medicine here, so a good place to start.

There are indeed veterinarians practicing here who did their studies elsewhere, just as many Swiss vets do stints in other countries to round out their education. Write the GSTSVS, they should be able to either answer your questions or put you on the road to finding the answers you need.
