Service Description

If you want to work as a specialist pharmacist in Schleswig-Holstein, you must have your specialist pharmacist's degree obtained abroad recognised.


Process flow

Recognition must be applied for in writing at the Schleswig-Holstein Chamber of Pharmacists. It decides on the application and checks whether you have acquired all the special or additional knowledge and skills required for recognition in terms of content and times. The equivalence of your specialist pharmacist degree is given if the content of the continuing education does not differ significantly from the content determined by the Chamber of Pharmacists in the continuing education regulations. This is followed by an oral examination.
