    Graduate medicine in Sweden/Norway?

    Advertisements



    Hei, I am finishing a Bachelor of Science degree in Australia, and I would like to study graduate medicine in either Norway or Sweden. Is this possible? I am studying Swedish at the moment. As in, I know I could study undergraduate medicine (but that would take 6 years), is there a shorter (eg. 4 year) course that still leads to legal recognition as a doctor (after further training)? Thank you if you can help

    Forget to graduate in Sweden! Sweden ONLY have a 5,5-year program, also it's VERY hard to get into med school in Sweden. People who got foreign education get in the third and last selection, people in the second rarely come in. Even if you become decent in Swedish you wouldn't make it on the "HP" to get into first grade, there is one english part, but everything else is in Swedish. It's going to change soon also, but today it's 122 questions. Average is around 60. To get into med school you need to have around 109 of those 122 questions. I've written it three times now, it's really tough making it. Last time 67.800 signed up and people really study their ***** to make it. This time 1944 people got a score that can get them into med school in Sweden. About 9000 persons were thrown out/didn't show up. My score was enough for lawschool, but I want to become a doctor. Probably I go to Romania.

    There are nearly 2000 who get the max score on HP, however it's just a part of the selection. Mostly school choose of the grades and the score on the HP. Today there is 900 seats in med school in Sweden. Today there are nearly 2500 persons from Sweden who study medicine abroad.

    Now foreigner also have to pay for med scool in Sweden, if they somehow are lucky to get in:

    The fee for medicine is 1.300.000 SEK/198.000 AUD/195.000 $/140.000 for foreigners, this is the number from the least popular university.

    You'd better come to Sweden after you've finished your degree.

    In western Europe the 6-year programs are the norm, and that is certainly the rule in Scandinavia. Admissions are incredibly competitive there, as noted above, and many Scandinavian students study medicine in eastern Europe simply because they cannot gain admission in their home countries.

    The only European countries I am aware of with 4-year medical school programs are Ireland and Poland. Ireland's schools are world-class, but they are expensive. They do take a significant number of international students. Poland's schools vary in quality for the English programs -- some are excellent and others are not.
