The doctor’s job is ready. She wants to contribute to the crisis. But the Norwegian Directorate of Health’s case processing can prevent doctor Maria Waleur Jansen.
Norwegian Maria Waleur Jansen works as a doctor in an emergency room in Denmark. While Norwegian hospitals lack people, the Norwegian Directorate of Health has spent over half a year deciding whether she can work in Norway. 40 newly graduated Norwegian doctors are in the same situation.
– We do not want to just come back to Norway, but we want to help.
Maria Waleur Jansen has completed six years of medical studies at the University of Aarhus. She has read Aftenposten’s description of games that feel that they do not extend to an everyday life where the corona pandemic takes up great resources. About games that say they do not catch fast enough that patients get worse.
Well, Jansen is more than ready to contribute to a Norwegian health service in crisis.
She has got what she calls the dream job. Waleur has been given a LIS1 position («Doctor in specialization 1», who has replaced old rotation positions, journ.anm.) at a hospital in Oslo.
There is only one thing missing: That the Norwegian Directorate of Health, which has stated that the supply of health personnel is difficult in hundreds of Norwegian municipalities, decides.
The processing of Jansen’s application for authorization to play in Norway has taken much longer than first promised. She is scheduled to begin work as a playmaker in Norway on March 1. Now she’s afraid the LIS1 position will go down the drain.
