Sahlgrenska International Care

Your gateway to highly specialized healthcare services in West Sweden

Our customers come from all over the world.  

Some are facing a health condition that cannot be treated locally. Or their doctor has tried all other means available and has now decided to refer a patient abroad to ensure the best care for a specific diagnosis.  

Another may be a doctor or a dentist interested in training to pursue a career as a specialist. 

Somewhere in the world a new clinic is being set up using organizational and medical know-how from Sweden.  

In another country a local authority can continue to provide inhabitants with basic healthcare partly thanks to equipment donated from hospitals around Region Västra Götaland.

What can we do for you?

Medical care

We provide highly specialized planned care for international patients.

Specialist Training

We offer specialist training programs and customized courses for doctors and dentists.

International Aid

By supporting our partners with medical equipment, technical and organizational expertise, as well as capacity building, we strive to assist in improving healthcare systems in developing countries.
