Denmark is the country with the shortest average working hours in Europe, therefore the whole family has more free time than what we are used to in Croatia, staying after work is not common practice and on average only 2% of people work overtime. Doctors in Denmark work roughly 37 hours a week on average which is why they have more time for family and friends, hobbies and leisure activities.
In the recruitment process, candidates have the opportunity to reach the hospital via Skype, as well as to have a paid visit to the city and hospital for 2 to 4 days in order to get acquainted and make the final decision easier. After signing a contract with the hospital, applicants and their families take a language course for an average of 5 to 8 months as we find the apartment, a job for a spouse, schools for children, arrange transferring your belongings and assist in all other parts of the process of moving to a new country.
Most of these specializations are currently in demand and hospitals are also prepared to offer excellent conditions for doctors who decide to relocate. For example, the gross monthly salary for a specialist in neurology in Denmark is 115,530 DKK, which translates into a net salary of 7,500 € per month.
