Employment for adaptation and training purposes involves a minimum commitment of 6 months, during which your clinical skills and communication abilities will be assessed. You are responsible for finding and applying for any available positions on your own, and the employment must be full-time.
It is crucial to ensure that the position you are applying for is either approved or can be approved for employment for adaptation and training purposes. The Danish Patient Safety Authority will review the position and provide authorization specific to your employment.
Temporary Authorisation (evalueringsautorisation)
Temporary authorization, referred to as "evalueringsautorisation," is required before you begin your employment. Upon receiving a job offer, you must apply for a temporary authorization by completing the "Ansøgning om evalueringsautorisation" form and submitting it to the Danish Patient Safety Authority.
When applying for a temporary authorization, you must also include an updated CV and ensure that the health authorities in the country where you last worked as a registered physiotherapist issue a new "good standing" statement or complete the form and send it directly to the Danish Patient Safety Authority. If the profession is unregulated in your country, a criminal record must be sent directly from the issuing authority to the Danish Patient Safety Authority.
To request an evaluation authorization, you must complete the form and have it stamped by the recruiting department/clinic. Then, you can send it to the Danish Patient Safety Authority via mail.

The Danish Patient Safety Authority requires a minimum of 14 days to process the necessary documentation and issue a temporary authorization.
Once you have completed the employment for adaptation and training purposes, and we have received positive evaluations (evalueringsskemaer) from the department, you will be granted Danish authorization as a physiotherapist.
If we receive negative assessments from your employer during the employment period, indicating that there is little possibility of improving your clinical and/or communication skills, the Danish Patient Safety Authority will determine the appropriate next steps.
