Against the background of global integration processes mass emigration of healthcare workers is becoming more widespread. Experienced professionals try themselves not only in their own countries, but also at health labor markets of abroad. According to the association of health workers of Ukraine, more than 6000 doctors leave Ukraine every year. The reasons which would explain why doctors and nurses seek employment in foreign medical institutions are different, but as a rule, almost all want one thing – to improve professional qualifications, have the right to work abroad and receive a decent salary. However, the procedure of migration and employment of Ukrainian medical professionals has its own specifics in many countries, which should be known in advance. To help understand these nuances, we have created this section, which describes the procedure for obtaining the license and registration to work in some countries. Over time, we plan to add more countries, thus expanding career horizons for health professionals.

Information about labour migration is normally published in Russian and/or Ukrainian. Information in the English language can be provided via the e-mail upon request.
