Are you a compassionate team player eager to excel in Paediatrics? We are now recruiting dedicated medical doctors to join our Swedish Specialist Medical Training Program (SMTP) at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, with a projected start in 2025. This program offers a comprehensive and rigorous training experience for physicians looking to advance their careers in Paediatrics. To be eligible for the Swedish Medical Training Program a minimum of 2 years clinical experience is required.

Discover Europe’s most advanced Children’s Hospital

Step into Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital, Europe’s most modern paediatric hospital. Designed with a focus on healing and providing a safe environment for children, in accordance with research and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We welcome patients from all over Sweden and the Nordic region. Here you will get the opportunity to work in the world's most advanced high-tech facilities, enabling us to treat the most critically ill children.

Queen Silvia Children's Hospital offers National Specialised Medical Care in 25 areas, from heart and lung transplants to eating disorder treatment. We are Sweden’s leading paediatric clinical research center, a Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) and partner of several European Reference Networks (ERN’s).

Elevate Your Career in the Field of Paediatrics

The Department of Paediatrics is a hub in the Children’s Hospital, with emergency care, inpatient wards and outpatient clinics. We are responsible for the largest paediatric ER in the Nordics. As the country's sole complete transplant hospital, we offer a leading transplant program for children.

We specialise in a wide range of critical conditions including autoimmune disorders, complex infectious diseases, metabolic and neurometabolic disorders, neurological, liver and renal conditions, in particular those requiring Renal Replacement Therapy.

Several top-class international research projects are conducted here. We have a strong tradition of both national and international collaboration.

Unparalleled Learning Experience

Join our residency program, where you will get the opportunity to delve into the entire spectrum of paediatrics, elevate your skills and contribute to pioneering international research projects.

Under supervision, you will rotate throughout a variety of specialties, engage in inpatient care, outpatient follow-ups and emergency ward rotations. Our residents collaborate with multidisciplinary teams across the three hospital sites (Östra, Mölndal & Sahlgrenska). The clinic emphasises research and each resident will have to conduct their own research project during their training.

An appointed supervisor will support you throughout the program and help to ensure that consistent progress is made. There will be frequent lectures and meetings for the group of residents in the clinic during which residents are expected to participate, exchange and present ideas as well as review new research.

You will be a part of the on-call team, out-patient service and assist in the emergency department. Alongside the rotations and clinical duties (40 hours per week), you will continuously need to study key literature.

The program spans over a minimum of five years. Prepare for a journey that will equip you with the necessary tools to become a highly skilled paediatrician.

Is this you?

Are you a compassionate team player, prioritising patient welfare and eager to excel? We are looking for organised, emotionally resilient individuals with excellent communication skills, a drive to integrate theory into practice, and a passion for research.

Listening, understanding, and earning the trust of patients and their families is paramount, ensuring the highest standards of safety and treatment outcomes.

How to Apply

Explore the program layout and application process to see if this is the right step for you. Submit your application by 30 September 2024.

After the deadline we will review the applications and select a few candidates for online Teams interviews. Those who successfully pass the initial interview 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 a language institute, to reach level C1.
