Medical - Human Resources / Job Candidate Assessment Sheet
German term or phrase: FMH
"Die angestellten Ärzte besitzen ein eidgenössisches oder adäquates Arztdiplom (EU).

... verfügen über eine entsprechende postgraduate Ausbildung mit Facharzttitel für die beantragte Psychiatrierichtung (***FMH*** oder vergleichbarem Titel).

Ausnahme: Assistenzärzte

Ärzte in leitender Stellung und Führungsfunktion waren mindestens Oberarzt an einer Ausbildungsklinik oder adäquater Stellung mit Entscheidungsbefugnis

Ärzte in leitender Stellung und Führungsfunktion besuchen Fort-/Weiterbildungen nach Vorgaben der entsprechenden Fachgesellschaft, evtl. eigene Kriterien (Hospitieren an anderen Kliniken)."

From a job candidate assessment sheet. I haven't got the foggiest idea what FMH stands for, but it's some sort of Swiss qualification. TIA for any light you can shed on it.
