โ€ข Introduction

In this article, we explain to you in an algorithm the exams and conditions required if you want to apply for a Swiss medical license (๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Approbation).

If you have the slightest doubt about a certain point or do not understand any information, askย at any time in the group of our community “Facharzt JETZT” for Switzerland onย Facebookย and Telegram (Telegram groups will appear as a folder; search then for the group “Doctors for Switzerland”). We remind you that this article is a guidance article to help you understand things and you should not rely solely on it. You should always return to the official websites. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Unlike Canada, Australia, and the UK, the steps needed to get a medical license in Switzerland depend on two things:

NationalityWhere you studied medicine

Yes, it could seem funny, these two factors can make your task an easy or a tough one. Please continue reading to know why.

โ€ข Question 1: Are you or your spouse (wife/husband) a national of an EU/EFTA country?

โ€ข If you do not know which countries are EU or EFTA countries, do not worry. We listed all of these countries in the following article in Facharzt JETZT:

The countries of the ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ European Union (EU) or of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA)

Congratulations. Your task could be easy. Please continue to question number 2.The steps are very complicated. You have to take an exam, and it’s hard to find a job. We will write an article about it later.
