Hello everyone!

I'm a med student from Lisbon, Portugal and I'm interested in following my postgrad clinical training in sweden or denmark.

Is there any other international student considering this? can u help me with the procedures' issue? are we supposed to contact the hospital we intend to go directly or should we adress some kind of national register first (and then they place the people where they are needed?)

any information will be highly appreciated (from nationals and other foreign grads who are/have been(are thinking of going through a similar postgrad practice
Thanks in advance =)

You have to apply for language courses over there, while making a volunteer work, for u to get better acknowledgement of the language and surroundings. Be aware that this is more difficult to do in bigger cities and univ. hospitals. For Denmark, visit:
or if you want a broad search through the scandinavian countries, visit:

hope this helps u!
