Working in Norway as a Medical Physicist
Foreign medical physicists who want to apply for work in Norway, don’t need a Norwegian certification (in fact, Norwegians don’t need it either, at least not yet). It is up to the employer to judge the applicant’s experience and skills. Nevertheless, a certification from another country would probably be appreciated.
We have a transitional agreement for certification as a medical physicist and Medical physicist specialist. It is, however, not a formal certification, although we are working to have the Government’s approval. Our aim is to have a process similar to the European guidelines (given by EFOMP).
