General info on the Danish healthcare system
Healthcare service in Denmark is almost exclusively covered publicly, financed by the five regions. The health services are organized into a primary healthcare sector (GPs and private practicing specialist doctors) and a secondary healthcare sector (hospitals and outpatient units), i.e. the GPs function as gatekeepers for the hospitals and specialist doctors. There are a number of private clinics, but the highest proportion of patients are treated in the public institutions.
Radiologists in Denmark
There are about 1050 radiologists in Denmark. The average monthly salary is 53.000 DKK (which adds up to a yearly income of about 85.200 EUR) and the weekly working hours are 37.
The continuing development of cancer treatment in Denmark will demand more radiological treatment and controls, and thereby more radiologists. Radiologists in Denmark work mainly at public hospitals where they diagnose the patients, however some also work in the private sector. As a radiologist, you work closely together with many other colleagues, e.g. doctors and nurses, and help them form a diagnosis by using X-rays, ultrasound, CT-scans etc. In Denmark, cancer treatment especially is given a lot of attention.
Societies for the speciality
Danish Society of Radiology: The society seeks to encourage and strengthen academic research within imaging diagnostics, as well as education and collaboration. The society also functions as a representative for all radiologists working in Denmark in European and international contexts.
