Employment for Adaptation and Training Purposes

Once you have successfully passed the language test, you will be eligible for employment for adaptation and training purposes, also known as "evalueringsansættelse."

Employment for adaptation and training is a 6-month period designed to assess your clinical and communication skills - or longer if we have assessed that you have not had enough clinical teaching hours and you must compensate for the missing hours during the employment.

You are responsible for finding and applying for any available positions on your own. This employment must be full-time.

It is essential to ensure that the position you apply for is eligible for employment for adaptation and training purposes. The Danish Patient Safety Authority will review the position and provide an authorization specifically for your employment.

Temporary Authorization (evalueringsautorisation)

When applying for a temporary authorization, please ensure that you submit an updated CV. Additionally, the health authorities in the country where you last practiced as a prosthetist and orthotist must send a new statement confirming your "good standing" or complete the required form directly to the Danish Patient Safety Authority. If your profession is an unregulated profession in your country, you must request a criminal record directly from the issuing authority and send it to the Danish Patient Safety Authority.

The completed form, duly filled and stamped by the recruiting department or clinic, must be sent to the Danish Patient Safety Authority via mail.

Assessment

The Danish Patient Safety Authority will require a minimum of 14 days to assess your application and issue a temporary authorization, provided they have received all the necessary documentation.

Positive Assessments

Upon successful completion of the employment for adaptation and training, and upon receiving positive assessments (evalueringsskemaer) from the department, you will be granted Danish authorization.

Negative Assessments

In the event that negative assessments are received from your employer during the employment period, indicating a lack of improvement in your clinical and/or communication skills, the Danish Patient Safety Authority will determine the appropriate course of action.
