    Doctor needed?

    I'm still in school but I was wondering how the outlook looked for an anesthesiologist. I went to Aruba a few months ago and fell in love. Do you think there is any chance for me?

    You will, at the very least, need to be fluent in Dutch. Most of the Dr.'s I met have been trained in Holland and all of my paperwork was in Dutch so......

    Are you serious that all the paperwork is in Dutch? How can I pick it up? I live in Ohio and they don't offer it anywhere. They offer Spanish, German, and French. If I could possibly get accepted to a college in Aruba do they have some classes I could take for the Dutch? Would Spanish be any use? Help please!

    I think you should contact the Aruba medical school if you are really serious about this. They do take foreign students.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Also you might hit a snag about the policy where a job must be offered to an Aruban first then if it's not filled it can go to some one else.

    But you need Dutch and some papimento. No software for papimento

    I bought a copy of this. Its basic but its a start. It should be available in the US too. If not I'm sure the postage wouldn't be too expensive.

    Hope it helps....
