The first steps towards a career in Sweden, Norway or Denmark

Paperwork / Registration

In order to register you as candidate and be able to send you offers which match your speciality and interests we need your CV in English. We will also ask you to answer a questionnaire by e‑mail. All your details are treated as confidential. After we record your CV in our database you will receive offers by e‑mail matching your professional profile and expectations. As soon as we have your CV and answers we start to work actively to find a position for you among all work offers available.

Interview with MediCarrera

We will organise a Skype or telephone conversation so we can get to know each other better. We will present you with the currently open positions in your speciality, we will inform you about the selection process, the services and support MediCarerra offers to you and your family. We would like to hear about your expec­tations, motivation, professional experience and if you have any doubts or questions, in order to be able to present to you the most fitting job offer.


We will also need to contact two of your references which can be current superiors or tutors but also from previous employment. They should know you well as a specialist doctor, dentist or nurse.

Interview with the future employer

Study tour and face-to-face interview. The selected doctors, dentists and nurses are invited for a study tour to the specific region of Sweden, Norway or Denmark, and for an interview with the future employer. You will learn more about the work environment and you will have the information that is important to you, before making a decision.
    The study tour usually takes two or three days, on one of which you will have an interview, see the clinic and meet colleagues. The second day you will see the town with surroundings, houses, schools, kindergarten and other things of particular interest for you – which you need to know more about to be able to make the decision. Your partner is also invited to join if you wish, but please be aware that the programme is quite intensive. Flight tickets and hotel costs will be paid for during the study tour. We will organise a personal tour guide who will show you around during your stay.

Guarantee of employment

After the study tour you and the clinic will make the final decision and if both of you agree you will receive a written guarantee of the employment on condition that you complete our intensive language course.

The whole process in a nutshell:

1. You register with us.
