Apply for Specialist Training in Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)
Are you a medical doctor interested in specialising in ENT (Otorhinolaryngology)? We are looking for a communicative team player who always puts patients first to join the Swedish Specialist Medical Training Program (SMTP) with projected start in 2023. To be eligible as a SMTP-resident you need to have at least 2 years of clinical experience, preferably within ENT, or head and neck surgery, maxillofacial surgery and research.
Join our team
You will join the ENT department at one of Northern Europe’s largest hospitals. We treat patients from all over Sweden, and some from abroad. We usually carry out around 25 000 outpatient visits and 5 300 inpatient days per year.
During the ENT residency you will get the opportunity to treat both children and adults, which will give you an insight into the entire spectrum of the ENT field. Focus areas are:
- head and neck cancer and other tumor surgery
- nasal and sinus surgery
- facial fracture
- airway surgery
- otology and otosurgery including hearing implants, otoneurology / dizziness
- habilitation and rehabilitation
We work in multidisciplinary teams, around Sahlgrenska University Hospital’s three sites (Östra, Mölndal, Sahlgrenska). You will also frequently collaborate with other departments.
Besides their clinical work, all specialists are deeply committed to research. For example, an ongoing high-profile project is the development of a unique bone conducted hearing aid technique together with Chalmers University of Technology.
Is this you?
Are you a fast learner who always puts patients first?
We are looking for a communicative team player with prior experience in ENT or head and neck surgery and research. You should have a high level of ambition, easily put theory into practice, not hesitate in stressful situations and be interested in performing research.
To fit into our department, you will need to listen, understand and earn the trust of both adults and children. We are specialists in different, highly challenging areas of ENT and need each other to be able to provide the best possible care for a broad spectrum of patients. All for the benefit of the patient´s safety and treatment outcomes.
Besides your clinical duties (40 hours per week), you will continuously need to study key literature as well as participate in research projects. Not only will you perform on-call duty, but you will also be part of the out-patient service and assist in the emergency and operating room. Eventually, depending on your skill development, you will be able to operate autonomously.
The clinical part of the training program reaches over 5 years. Besides the core training program in ENT, you will also do rotations in other specialties and participate in a number of different courses.
After the deadline we will review the applications and select a few candidates for Teams interviews in April 2022. Those who successfully pass that step will be invited to a second interview at the hospital.
Please note that the program is given in Swedish. Swedes are generally quite good at English, but Swedish is the working language used for teaching and for communicating with colleagues and patients. This means that a good command of the Swedish language is crucial. The Program therefore begins with mandatory studies in Swedish for about 10 months at the language institute Folkuniversitetet.
We are following the COVID-19 development and the recommendations of relevant authorities closely. We will inform you continuously if this affects the application process.
Our Education Manager is happy to help if you have any questions.
We look forward to finding out more about you!
