In order to practise, surgeons and dentists must obtain a governmental certificate and must be named on the door of their surgery.
Surgeons study for a diploma at medical university which takes six years and after passing their final examination they take surgery training at a clinic or hospital for three to five years (depending on what kind of surgery they wish to specialise in). Afterwards, they take another exam before gaining their diploma qualifying them to be a full medical surgeon.
The State National Health Commission and Medical Service
is the equivalent of our Health Care Commission in the UK. The Chief Medical Officer is the head and over-sees all healthcare providers and assesses the quality in each clinic and hospital. All doctors and dentists have to be members of the Hungarian Medical Chamber
in order to practice. (Web sites only in Hungarian at present.)
All cosmetic surgeons must be qualified and experienced general surgeons before they can specialise in cosmetic surgery, so a cosmetic surgeon will know everything about being a surgeon as well as their specialist field, which is secondary. They must undertake further training and another exam before achieving a diploma which allows them to practise cosmetic surgery. This takes one to two years - so in total a surgeon will have a minimum of 13 years training before becoming a cosmetic surgeon.
