In order to practise, surgeons in Hungary 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.
Training of cosmetic surgeons in Hungary
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.
