Internationals in the Amsterdam Area recently responded to a survey asking about their willingness to work in the Dutch healthcare sector. There were many positive responses, so we are holding an open information session about working in healthcare in the Amsterdam Area. Everyone interested is welcome, there are opportunities for people both with or without training and experience in the field. The session is for international residents and is fully in English. Although healthcare workers do need a certain level of Dutch, you do not need to have that level yet. This session is intended to inform participants about job opportunities in healthcare, a special introduction programme for internationals that includes the Dutch language, and the options for people with and without experience in the sector. 

Information event programme

We will cover programmes and training at various levels:  

  • Welcome

  • Introduction to healthcare in the Amsterdam Area: employers, sectors and shortages in the region

  • Recognition of diplomas and the BIG Register

  • First orientation programme "Zorg en Welzijn" for internationals in English (Including learning the Dutch language)

  • Healthcare education and training 

  • Time for questions and networking

This IN Amsterdam event is organised jointly with Sigra, Transferpunt Zorg en Welzijn (House of Skills) and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool van Amsterdam, HvA).
