Documents for obtaining the medical license in Ukraine

As soon as the Sanitary and Epidemiological Conclusion is ready, You can fill all the required documents. We can help You with all the documents for the medical license:

  • Application for the license - your application for the license obtainment with basic company data.
  • List of submitted documents.
  • Statement on the condition of the material and technical base and the availability of personnel. This is the hardest document to be prepared as the license committee scrutinizes each document paragraph and the slightest mistake will result in the denial of the license. This document indicates, for example, the types of medical care that the institution will provide or what the institution's signage will look like. The document contains 11 paragraphs, the completion of which is often a headache for those who are not familiar with the licensing requirements.

Thus, based on our experience, one of the most difficult moments is to fill in the paragraph about the material and technical base of offices. After all, this paragraph should carefully specify the specialty, time of operation of the doctor, the area of each room and the equipment that should be in it.

Once the documents are finally collected and submitted, the licensing committee has 10 days to make a decision.

Of course, for a person who does not understand the intricacies of Ukrainian legislation, both procedures seem terrible and difficult to perform. But everything is solved simply and efficiently, if You have a highly qualified lawyer who knows his business. We always offer our Clients an introductory consultation in order to choose together the most comfortable and optimal variant of achieving his goal.
