In May, we published information on the introduction of a temporary internship for foreign doctors in Slovakia on our website: https://www.malns.sk/ru/temporary-internship-for-foreign-doctors/. It was stated quite vaguely in the law that a temporary internship is valid only in a crisis situation. Moreover, when the government announced in June the lifting of several restrictive measures and the end of intensive work by the crisis headquarters, the question arose as to whether foreign doctors in Slovakia who had undergone documents recognition but had not yet passed the qualification exam could still count on this temporary internship.
For the answer, we decided to contact the representatives of the Law Office Antovszká, s.r.o., who are currently helping us to develop and prepare a course “Legal Minimum for Foreign Healthcare Professionals”, which is scheduled for the period from September 7 to October 15, 2020.
The answer is attached. According to the fact that the state of emergency was cancelled on the territory of Slovakia on the night of June 13-14, but the crisis situation is still in effect, foreign doctors can still take advantage of the opportunity for temporary internship.
