This thread is a "work in progress" with the purpose to gather relevant information and useful website links in a single place so that they are easier to find. The list, being considered incomplete, should therefore not be used as the only guide to entering Sweden as a foreign medical graduate.

Of course, all suggestions for additional inclusions are welcome!


Abbreviations used below:
FMG = Foreign medical graduate (graduated outside of EU/EEA)
EMG = European medical graduate (graduated within EU/EEA)
AT = "allmäntjänstgöring", 18-24 months of postgraduate internship


General info
