Welcome to the Danish Medical Association

Almost all doctors working in Denmark are members of the Danish Medical Association. This gives us a strong voice in representing the interests of doctors. In order to become a member, you have to obtain a Danish authorisation to practise medicine in Denmark.  

Where did you receive your medical training?

I did my medical training in a Nordic country

The Danish Patient Safety Authority (Styrelsen for Patientsikkerhed) is responsible for issuing the authorisations. 

If you have a Danish authorisation, you can apply for a membership here: https://www.laeger.dk/bliv-medlem
