Danish society and especially patients in hospitals expect strong language skills and a prior understanding of the society and health care culture. The Medicolink Method pays special attention to this aspect. Before starting your new job in Denmark, we therefore ask you to join a Danish language training course that is now held completely online.
During your entire training period, you will be receiving financial compensation to ensure that your everyday needs are met and that you can focus fully on the training without having to worry about paying your bills.
The training lasts approximately five months, plus 2 weeks additional online teaching. This period can be shortened or extended according to the requirements of the future job and/or the level of proficiency obtained by the candidate during the training period.
We are aware that the family is elemental to the success of the training and integration process. Accordingly, we provide free learning material for the candidate’s family. Medicolink’s offer to spouses is a full Danish language course and to elderly children a part-time language training. Furthermore, once the family arrives in Denmark, anyone with a registered Danish social security number (i.e. CPR number) will have the opportunity to receive three years of free Danish lessons courtesy of the Danish state.
The foundation of learning Danish will be grounded during the language course. For this reason, we aim to make the course as stimulating and interactive as possible: In addition to basic reading material and written exercises, we make use of cases representing real-life situations, audio and video samples, real-life language training etc.
