Medical doctor: application for registration
The authorisation process and the required documentation depend on the country in which you are a national and the country in which you qualified as a medical doctor:
Until you have been granted Danish authorisation and permission to work independently as a medical doctor, you are obliged to keep updated about any changes to the authorisation process and the deadlines you have to meet.
According to the Danish Authorisation Act, doctors are required to practice their profession with due care and conscientiousness. This provision also implies sound communication with patients, relatives, other healthcare professionals etc. The appointing authority assesses whether the doctor meets the requirements laid down in the Danish Authorisation Act.
Once you have received Danish authorization and permission to work independently as a doctor, you may commence specialist training in Denmark. You can find information about specialist training including a list of approved curricula by specialty on the website of the Health Authority. The site is in Danish.
