General information for doctors
about working conditions in Iceland.

Administrative procedures

In Iceland the Ministry of Health and Social Security is the competent
authority responsible for issuing medical qualifications. A doctor seeking
recognition in Iceland should therefore approach the Ministry for

If the applicant is a national of a EEA Member State (EFTA or EU) and holds
a medical qualification awarded on completion of training in a Member State
he/she is eligible to benefit under the Medical Directive 93/16/EEC. In
addition to an application the following documents must be submitted:

1. a certified proof of citizenship in a EEA country

2. a statement from the competent authorities in the home country of the
applicant that his/hers training for basic qualifications complies with the
training standards laid down in article 23 of the directive 93/16/EEC.

3. a certified copy of the diploma showing that the applicant is registred
as a medical doctor in the home country

4. a certified copy of the applicant´s licence as a specialist (if applying
for a speciality).

5. certificate of good standing with the competent authority in the Member
State of origin or last residence. This certificate must not be older than
three months.

6. a translation of any document in English certified as correct by
government authority or official translator.

7. curriculum vitae (not compulsory)

When the Ministry has made the formal assessment the applicant will become
fully registered and the licence to practice will be issued.

If the applicant is not a national of a EEA Member State the procedure for
recognition is more complicated, but the same documents have to be
submitted, then the qualifications of the applicant will be assessed by a
special board under the medical faculty of the University of Iceland,
responsible for evaluating the medical training in Iceland. The board
always contacts the applicant´s university directly. Full adress and
telephone/fax numbers of that university are therefore needed. In
individual cases more documents may be needed.

When the confirmation of the applicant´s university has been received the
applicant has to pass an exam, where his/hers knowledge in the Icelandic
language is tested, and in most cases the applicant also has to pass tests
in public health, health legislation, surgery,internal medicine, forensic
medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, otorhinolaryngology,
optalmology, dermagtology, obstetrics and gynaecology and examination in
Icelandic law connected to medicine. When these requirements are fullfilled
the medical faculty will give its recommendations to the Ministry.

All examinations are held in Icelandic.

Citizens from other countries than countries on the European Economic Area
have to certify that he/she is a possible applicant for an advertised

All documents submitted must be translated into Icelandic by an official

An applicant must contact the university were he/she graduated from. That
university has to send to the ministry a confirmation that the applicant
has graduated from that university. This confirmation must come from the
university straight to the Ministry of Health and not via the applicant.

Medical education and training.

Medical education and training in Iceland is organized in three phases:
medical school, basic clinical training and specialist training. Basic
undergraduate medical education takes 6 years and after gratuation follows
a 12 months compulsory training programme, comprising of nine clinical
months, including internal medicine (4 months), family medicine (3 months),
surgery (2 months) and the applicant can choose between several clinics for
the rest. After successful completion of this programme the doctor obtains
his/hers licence to practice (full registration) which is granted by the
Ministry of Health.

Once the doctor has got his licence to practice, he/she is entitled to
apply for a post to start the specialist training, which has a duration of
minimum 4 1/2 years and is carried out in a salaried position with medical
responsibility. There are 33 specialities and 39 subspecialities recognized
in Iceland. Most of the Icelandic doctors seek their specialist training
abroad, as there are very few formal training posts for specialists in

Working conditions.

Iceland has a centralized health and medical care system, the financial
responsibility lies on the Government but the responsibility for operating
the different hospitals and health centers is delegated to the respective
boards. The role of the Government is also to provide the legal framework
and supervising that medical care is safe, of good quality and equitably

Medical care is both distributed from the hospitals and primary care health
centres around the country. Most of the doctors are employed in the
official medical sector but many hospital doctors also have their private
practices as part time work. Posts for physicians are advertised in the
Icelandic Medical Journal and the main newspapers, both the permanent
positions and positions as locum tenens. Salaries and general terms of
employment are negotiated between the Ministry of Finance and the Icelandic
Medical Association, and most of the doctors in Iceland are members of IMA.

Labour market situation.

The number of Icelandic physicians has increased steadily during the last
decade. There is now one doctor for every 320 inhabitants. The total
population of Iceland is 275.000.

Most of the health professionals in Iceland are employed by the different
institutions, hospitals and health centers. The usual way for foreign
doctors is to contact either the Icelandic Medical Association for advice
or the biggest hospitals to apply for a salaried hospital post. As
mentioned before The Ministry of Health is responsible for the formal
recognition of diplomas, that process is usually started after the
applicant has gotten a positive response from the employer. The procedure
is more simple if the applicant is only seeking a locum tenens positions
for a definite period.

For doctors coming from the European Community and the EFTA-contries
(Norway and Lichtenstein) this process is rather simple but for doctors
coming from other countries the process is more complicated. Doctors from
these countries, working as locums, usually get time-limited licenses.

For studying the Icelandic language the easiest way is to contact The
University of Iceland to obtain further information
