Doctors not trained in Switzerland could face extra testing

National News // July 6, 2017

Doctors wanting to practice in Switzerland who have been trained elsewhere could be subjected to extra tests about the country’s health system and their language skills under government plans to restrict the number of foreign doctors practicing here.

The proposed measures are part of ongoing efforts to replace a temporary cap on doctors, which is in place until 2019, and to reduce increasing health care costs.

Under the proposals, the 26 cantons, which are mainly responsible for health matters, would also be able to limit the number of medical specialists in coordination with other stakeholders in the health sector.
