  • You may apply for a residency permit in Denmark, which allows you to study Danish and pass the professional tests and exams needed to work as a doctor or nurse in Denmark.
  • A residence permit granted to obtain authorization does not grant you the right to work. It allows you to stay in Denmark when your permit is valid. Besides, a permit allows you to stay in the Schengen area for up to 90 days within the latest 180-day period. However, it does not allow you to work in other Schengen countries.
  • A residence permit to obtain authorization in Denmark allows you to carry your family to Denmark. Your spouse, registered or cohabiting partner, as well as children under the age of 18 living at home, could be granted a permit.
  • You must, therefore, apply for a separate work permit in connection with the so-called ‘employment for adaptation and training purposes’ that is a part of the authorization process.
  • If you are offered a job at a Danish hospital, you must apply for a work permit. It would be best if you did not start working until you have obtained a permit. Salary and terms of employment must correspond to Danish requirements for adaptation and training during your employment. You must obtain an “evaluation authorization” from the Danish Patient Safety Authority before applying for a work permit. As a medical doctor, you may work as a health professional, research-based health scholar, administrator, collaborator, communicator, medical expert, etc.
