Becoming a GP in the Nordic countries

General practice is the bedrock of the Nordic countries. Even so, systems differ. The GP can either be a lone practitioner (common in Denmark) or work in big multiprofessional units (like in Finland). A strong tradition of personal continuity is typical for Norway. Also, the specialist training differs quite much, in Iceland, a strong network helps along the way, in Sweden, assessment along the specialisation path helps along. In this episode (recorded 08/21-06/22) young GPs from the nordic countries discuss how we become GPs in the nordic countries. Participants: Annika Kolster FIN, Berglind Gunnarsdóttir ISL, Katrina Tibbals NOR, Linn Ekström-Feyzi SWE, Anne Mette Torp DK.
