MPs ease employment procedures for foreign doctors

Slovenian members of parliament passed amendments to the Medical Practitioners Act today, which will make it easier to employ doctors coming from outside the European Union.

With the amendments, the Minister of Health will be able to issue an order allowing medical specialists with special skills from third countries to temporarily perform health services in Slovenia.

The amendments will be put into practice only in special cases, when public institutions with Slovenian experts are unable to provide continuous health services, which could consequently threaten the lives or cause severe health damage to patients. High proficiency in Slovenian language will not be expected from the foreign doctors, but the provider of health services will have to ensure communication between the invited doctor, his patient, and the patient’s relatives in Slovenian language. All the patient’s medical records will also have to be available in Slovenian language.

The foreign doctor will be able to work in Slovenia for up to one year if he is invited by a tertiary health care institution and if three doctors in Slovenia guarantee his special skills – out of the three one has to be the national coordinator for that area of specialty, and the other has to be a specialist mentor.
