All doctors who did their medical training outside Denmark (including those from the Nordic countries) must have a Danish authorisation to be able to practise medicine in Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.
If you have finished Allemantjanstgoring/AT (Sweden), allemanutbildning (Finland), Turnustjanstgoring (Norway) or allmanutbildning (Iceland) then you automatically receive a licence to practise by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority.
You apply or register for authorisation at the Danish Health and Medicines Authority. Read more and apply here
