Doctors without Swedish licence to practice medicine
You who have a foreign health and medical education need a Swedish licence to be allowed to practice medicine in Sweden.
To obtain a licence, you must have your professional qualifications approved. You also need to have good language skills in Swedish, Danish or Norwegian.
It is the National Board of Health and Welfare that tests and issues the licence, proof of specialist competence and various types of certificates.
