How can Turkish doctors practice medicine in Finland?
Health professionals such as doctors or physicians who require legal authorization are authorized by Valvira in Finland. In order to become a legally authorized doctor in Finland, we have to follow the path set out by Valvira. The first requirement is your "medical school diploma". The second requirement is "at least 6 months of internship" in Finland. The third requirement is the "B1-B2 Finnish language proficiency" that you will obtain through "Finnish language training and YKI language exam" during the first two mentioned processes. In the last part, there are "three-stage exams" for medical qualification. Each exam increases your authorization. When you pass the final exam, you are registered as a fully legally competent doctor.

For the Promotion of the Medical School Diploma
The documents required for medical equivalence procedures do not exceed the number of fingers of one hand. 1) Diploma, 2) Passport, 3) Good-Standing Certificate are the documents currently required. We recommend you to add 4) Transcript and if possible 5) Diploma Supplement according to the old way. As much as possible, keep the original documents in English. If your diploma is in Turkish, please ask the faculty secretariat for a "Diploma in English as Original" document. Click here for a short roadmap.
European Doctors' Cooperative
It is a cooperative providing products and services to doctors aiming to practice medicine in Europe and practice medicine in Finland. It was founded by doctors in Finland. Doktorlar Osuuskuntaclick here for details.
Who are we?
What are our objectives?
How and where do we benefit?
Our doctors' group is an interest group built on cooperation and solidarity. The benefits we achieve are reflected in the common denominator. With the skills we have acquired, we have been able to accomplish tasks that 100s of thousands of euros of capital would not be able to handle.
We were able to formalize this group in the interests of our colleagues and set up a European cooperative.
We are the first non-publicly funded physician cooperative in Finland. The first public cooperative, which is a university partnership and a specialized doctors' cooperative, is located in the northern region. In this respect, we are the only physicians' cooperative in the south, in the capital region. As such, we have the potential to seize many opportunities.
The earning potential of our cooperative is increasing day by day.
I don't see any problem in using a slogan here:
"Our physicians can also be athletes, craftsmen, artists and businessmen. However, the opposite is rarely seen"
In this respect, we should be open to using every potential of our cooperative.
Cooperatives are "democratic" in nature and maintain their structure through their transparency.
In fact, there is not much room left for mistrust.
I believe it will be the place where you will feel safer and stronger.
