Career and employment
If you hold a non-Swedish diploma, you need to apply for a license to practice from The National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen). In Sweden there are 21 regulated health care professions that require a license to practice. Among these professions are Doctors of medicine and Nurses responsible for general care.
Beside the license to practise, we also require:
- Swedish language knowledge at the minimum level of C1 (according to CEFR Level Scale).
- A valid residence permit (EU citizens) or work- and residence permit (non EU citizens)
