Procedure for holders of a paramedical degree wanting to exercise their profession

Your medical degree must be validated before you may excercise your profession in Belgium.

Exception: if you obtained your medical degree in a country outside of the EEA, you require recognition of the equivalence of your degree from NARIC (National Academic Recognition Information Centre of the Government of Flanders.

  • One of the conditions for NARIC to recognise the equivalence of your diploma is that you are sufficiently fluent in Dutch. The level required is European level B2.
