What are the requirements for practicing medicine in France when you’re a European doctor ?
- Nationality : You must be a citizen of a member country in the European Union.
- Registration in France’s Order of Doctors : Make a registration request with the Order of Doctors in the department where you would like to practice medicine. The teams at BRM Consulting can help you register with the Order. We will cover the cost of translating your documents and put you in touch with the Order of Doctors Board.
- A Medical Degree : France automatically recognises medical degrees from other member countries in the European Union.
- Speaking French : You need to have a “decent” level of French to practice medicine in France. That’s why we have left the job proposals on our site in French. In our opinion, a B1/B2 level is acceptable. However, even if you do not have a “good” level of French, we can help you by paying for intensive and accelerated French courses. Contact us to tell us about your situation. We will find a way to help you achieve your professional goals.
