Step 4: Undergo clinical training

During your clinical training period you demonstrate your practical knowledge and skills and your suitability for the profession. At the same time, you will see how the Swedish healthcare system works.

Follow these steps

  1. You have to find a workplace yourself where you can do your clinical training.
  2. When you have completed your training, your manager and your supervisor will fill out a certificate for your clinical training. You must also sign the certificate.
  3. Enclose the certificate when you submit your application for a licence in the next step.
