Are Indian dental qualifications recognised in Poland?

I am planning to shift to Wroclaw with my husband and son. I have finished my bachelors in dental surgery from reputed university in India. Have 8 years of clinical experience. Is my degree recognised in Poland to work? What kind of jobs I may get if I shift? What can be expected salary?

Is my degree recognised in Poland to work?

No. You might be able to get it recognised via a nostrification process, but that will not be easy, will take a fairly long time and will almost certainly need to be all done in Polish. It might well be quicker and easier to do a post-graduate course (in English) at a college in Wroclaw which is recognised here.

What kind of jobs I may get if I shift?

I'd be very surprised if you got any job at all in your profession. Firstly, you don't speak the language of your co-workers and clients. Secondly you have no recognised qualifications. So why would an employer give you a job? And even if you could find an employer who is willing to give you a job, it's not likely that you'd be able to get a work permit.

On the plus side, I know that work permit requirements are waived in certain circumstances for graduates of Polish colleges.

Thank you Harry.... But can you please suggest me any other job if not in my profession. Something related to health industry? What other decent job can I get as a graduate?

Sorry but I can't really think of any decent jobs for a person who doesn't have an EU passport (and so requires a work permit), has no recognised qualification and doesn't speak Polish. The best you might get would be call centre work for a couple of thousand zloty a month but even there I really can't see why an employer would want to go through the hassle of getting a work permit for somebody who (based on your posts here) doesn't have English as a first language.

I do have English as first language and my entire education is in English medium. So as I am fluent in English can't I get any job? What is the procedure for nostrification of my degree?

Remember that to work in healthcare in Poland, perfect or at least very good Polish is needed - there's also too many people chasing too few jobs, and many people going abroad for work.

Aap kaisee hain? Remember that English is not an official language in Poland. There are many jobs for English speakers in Poland, but mostly in IT, call centers and teaching English.

Some people don't know this, but English is an official language in India, and every educated Indian I ever met spoke English fluently.

May I ask why Wroclaw? Is your husband from there - or maybe he was offered a job there?

What is the procedure for nostrification of my degree?

Long, complicated and expensive. Have a read about the basics here: Nostrification_of_diplomas.html

More specialised information here:

oil.org.pl/xml/nil/tematy/komisje/0105/cudzoz/archiwum/info1_en

and here
mz.gov.pl/en/healthcare-system/health-personnel-and-training/recognition-of-professional-qualifications/recognition-of-doctors-and-dentists-internship-underwent-outside-poland

So as I am fluent in English

Sorry but your posts don't show that, for example you use incorrect words (e.g. 'shift' in place of 'move') and don't structure questions correctly (e.g. "Which is the school in Wroclaw where he can join and how much it may cost?"). And even if you are fluent in English, it's fluency in Polish that is needed to work in your chosen profession.

can't I get any job?

You might be able to get a job in a call centre but as said above I don't know why a prospective employer would want to go through the hassle of getting you a work permit

Thanks for reply.. Actually Wroclaw coz my husband has a offer there. And actually I need a job to keep myself engaged and I don't have financial burdens as it vl b taken care by my hubby. It is just a extra income. So tell me what are qualifications or requirements to teach English in schools? And what salary can I expect?

Harry I thought it was a forum for just some casual conversations and to share information so just dint bother to check n write everything. And to type a msg is what I hate a lot so was trying to cut short everything as much as possible and ask whatever information I wanted.

In theory there aren't any. In practice, in order to get a work permit you will need a degree and a teaching qualification (and most probably a bit of experience). But, again, as an un-qualified candidate with no experience (and speaking a somewhat non EU standard form on English), it's a struggle to understand why a school would want to jump through the hoops getting you a work permit.

And what salary can I expect?

With no experience, living in a city which has a more than sufficient supply of teachers with some qualifications and experience who do not need a work permit, you'd be lucky to make more than a couple of thousand zloty a month, i.e. a fairly insulting amount.

Harry I thought it was a forum for just some casual conversations and to share information so just dint bother to check n write everything.

Yes, point taken, but when a person repeatedly uses the word 'shift' in places where a shorter word (i.e. 'move') should be used, one does wonder why that word is being used.

Why not go back to school?

I would encourage you to do this as well. That way you keep busy, build a social network (which should come in handy when you look for a job for example) and earn additional professional qualifications at the same time. You can take Polish lessons concurrently with your studies to maximize time utilization.

Getting back after long time. I got to know that there is no post graduate degree in dentistry in Poland. Dentistry in Poland is 5 years course and then you are awarded with MSc in dentistry. Can anyone suggest me what other post graduation course can I pursue in Wroclaw medical university? Can I get into some research field?

Jobs as dentists are plenty in PL and is a market that is well developed thanks even to west europeans that come for cheaper operations.

But, as someone else said, is hard to get a job as an employee without a fluent polish language (that would require 2 years or more of hard dedication) and a recognized qualification.

For a job as a teacher ... I traveled EU a lot and I can tell you that, despite indians are english speakers and they've big communities in EU, I never found an english teacher coming directly from India, generally are brits americans australians irish malteses ...

Language is crucial for medical, patient needs to be understood with zero mistakes.

I seriously doubt that Indian dental (medical) diplomas are recognized in Poland (and in EU, not to talk about other areas). Besides, like Marsu says, it's obvious that the medical staff must speak local language with 0 mistake and without any foreign accent in order to deal with patients.

@Polsyr: Yes, English is an official language in India since there are hundreds of languages but please realize that Indian English is different. In Poland, they want to learn "real" English and therefore they teach British or American English.

Good point. This is why my specs are: white, US-born, US-educated, 40-something male. No exceptions other than the ER.

You'd need to contact the Rada Stomatologów. You'll also need a good command of the Polish language.

Providing the university and qualification are accredited, yes. If not, usually no.

You will need to contact the institution you want to study at; there are currently several medical academies in Poland that offer dentistry courses in English.
