Doctors (license to practice medicine)
The majority of applications for recognition are filed by foreign doctors wishing to have their license to practice medicine recognized. The range of countries of origin is enormous. Romania ranks first with 561 applications processed. Syria, a non-European country, ranked second, followed by Austria. Some 400 applications processed were filed by those trained in Egypt.
The recognition rate of those trained in Europe equals 100%. In case of the non-European countries of training, the success rate is a bit lower. For example, every seventh application form Syria and Egypt is not granted full equivalence. Nearly twice as many applicants form Serbia or Iran receive no full equivalence.
