Personal Doctor - For those with Norwegian ID numbers

If you are eligible for a Norwegian ID number, you can choose a personal doctor (GP) as soon as you receive your Norwegian ID.  Most new students who apply for a Norwegian ID are automatically assigned a personal doctor and are informed of this by post. However, if you have received a Norwegian ID number and have not been assigned a personal doctor, you can choose one yourself by going through the list of available doctors in Ås (use Google translate to read the reviews of the doctors to help you decide which one to choose. It is only possible to choose a doctor who has free spots available). Once you have decided whom you wish to have as a personal doctor, call this number to ask for the doctor to be assigned to you: 23 32 70 00 When you call, just hold the line and eventually someone will answer, please have your Norwegian ID number ready.
