The University of Gothenburg offers supplementary programs for doctors, dentists and nurses.
The Government has asked the University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, Linköping University and Lund University to offer supplementary programs for individuals who have degrees in medicine, dentistry or nursing from non-EU countries (with the exception of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland).
All programs begin each fall semester, provided that resources have been appropriated.

The enrollment period is March 16 to April 15.
