Notification of Ukrainian Diploma as a Doctor-Pharmacist in Poland
The article represents the peculiarities of recognizing higher medical education obtained in Ukraine in Poland. Nostrification (from German Nostrifikation derived from Latin Noster – “our”, and Latin Facere – “to do”) is a procedure for the recognition of diplomas issued by educational establishments of other countries. All the certificates and diplomas obtained in Ukraine can be legalized in Poland. The paper describes the procedure for preparing the documents needed and the basic legal components of a successful nostrification of diploma in medicine, pharmacy. The recognition of foreign diploma grants you the right to continue your education and professional activity in Poland and is carried out on an individual basis. If you want your diploma to be recognized in Poland, you should contact the Ministerstwо Nauki i Szkolnictwa Wyższego or Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange – NAWA. An Agreement between the Government of Ukraine and the Government of Republic of Poland on Mutual Recognition of Education Documents and Scientific Degrees was signed on May 31, 2006 (Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 769). Thus, the Polish documents of secondary education, higher education levels, as well as academic degrees provide the opportunity to continue education in Ukraine and, accordingly, such documents received in Ukraine guarantee this opportunity in Poland. However, the agreement does not apply to certain professional rights including extra payments for academic degrees or ranks. The confirming university shall confirm or refuse to confirm the completion of studies at a specified level within 90 days from the date of submission of the request. In case of differences in study curriculum, learning outcomes or duration of studies, the confirming university may oblige the person to take specific examinations or undergo a professional traineeship. Obtaining a certificate of nostrification allows you to continue the process of recognizing higher medical education in order to ultimately be able to work as a doctor in the European Union.
