Request for training stays for international professionals

This type of stay is addressed to specialists and residents who develop their professional activity abroad and must be authorized by the Ministry of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare.

This permit is granted only to active professionals and has a maximum duration of six months, extendable only in some cases. It is essential to inform yourself on the website of the Ministry about the regulations that regulate these stays and the required procedures before carrying out any management.

IMPORTANT: As a consequence of the exceptional measures to face and prevent COVID-19, the Spanish Ministry of Health keeps the stays of foreign doctors suspended. Stay informed through the official website of the Ministry, where information is updated according to the evolution of the pandemic.

Calendar (depends on the dates of the Ministry during 2022)

When making your request, you will have to indicate the date in which you wish to start and end the stay or rotation. Important: the fact that a specific date is available in the calendar does not necessarily mean that the request is accepted. The SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital will assess according to all the requests it receives and will give a response to each case. An attempt will be made to respond as soon as possible so that, if the request is denied, the professional has the option to send his request to another center.
