Lack of information

The quantitative survey data reveal that 53% of the health workers originating from
the Republic of Moldova received full recognition of their qualifications obtained in the
Republic of Moldova; 27% received partial recognition and 7% said that their qualifica-
tions were not recognized (the remaining 13% studied in Romania). The problem of non-
recognition of qualifications was mentioned mostly by doctors.

About one third of survey participants received additional training in Romania before
being employed. This was prompted by Ministry of Health request, personal initiative or
request of their professional union or employer.

How is the procedure for equivalence of studies and
recognition of quali�cations assessed?

The representatives of the professional unions consider that optimal professional inte-
gration conditions are created for the health workers originating from the Republic of
Moldova wanting to work in Romania. They also assess the procedure for equivalence
of studies and recognition of qualifications as non-discriminatory. The same opinion was
expressed by the managers of the medical institutions, some of whom also worked in
other EU countries: “I think that the Romanian state did enough to facilitate the integra-
tion of the health workers from the Republic of Moldova in the Romanian health system.
I don’t think there are any artificial barriers” (IE_5).

The opinions of the health workers originating from the Republic of Moldova agree with
those of the managers. Many assess the procedure of equivalence of university studies
and residency training as normal – dealt with easily and rapidly. A doctor who emigrated
in 1999 said:

There were no big difficulties! My friends told me how to prepare the documents. I pre-
pared them, I came to the Ministry and presented them. The recognition of the docu-
ments was even easier than gaining citizenship – meaning it did not take as long! There
were no major difficulties (IIA_8).

For survey participants, the equivalence of diplomas procedure took from two to 12
months – “about six months!” for most.

Some respondents mentioned difficulties arising because they lacked information about
the procedure for equivalence and recognition of qualifications. One respondent said:

...It was not easy because I was totally uninformed. The most complicated thing was that
I had to have a sort of mentor in Romania. I would go to the faculty and they would tell
me that they did not know what I was talking about, and I would have to go back to the
Ministry and so on. The procedure was not known (IIA_10).
