Practising plastic surgery in Belgium

- As part of the European Union, degrees of Medical Doctor and Specialists in plastic surgery from EU countries are theoretically recognized in Belgium (equivalency diploma) but must be certified and confirmed by the Recognition Commissions of the Department of Public Health.

- Physicians practising on Belgian soil, even for short periods, must be registered with the College of Physicians of the province in which they practice. There is no equivalence of diplomas of medicine or medical speciality for countries outside the European Union.
