Primary care clinics near Gothenburg in Sweden are looking for family medicine / GP specialists to join their teams.
Sweden provides one of the best living standards in the world. Residents enjoy free education, subsidized health care, an extensive and smooth-running public transport system and access to the magnificent unspoiled countryside. Primary care forms the foundation of the health care system in Sweden. As a primary care clinic, we provide highly skilled and competent preventive care and are responsible for guiding the patients to the correct level of care within the healthcare system in Sweden. The principle of providing care for patients from cradle to grave is embedded in the Scandinavian primary care model. Work is team-based and we promote this by having a constant focus on doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, welfare counselors, administrators etc. growing their understanding of the value of the team. As an example of this we have all of our permanent staff do psychometric testing to help coach them to see their personal strengths and drivers and to coach them how to best fit into the team. This fall we will have all staffs employed by the Medpro Clinic Group participate in 2½ days of training and fun with the clear goal of growing this Team-Spirit.
As a GP you will care for patients between the ages 0-100 with all kind of different types of diagnoses. Your tasks will also include tutorials of students/training doctors and other personnel, cooperation with elderly homes, lifestyle-oriented preventive work, etc. Most of our primary care centers have 25-40 members of staff and are located in close proximity to Gothenburg and Gothenburg Airport with flights in and out of the area to all of the rest of Europe. We are located in Lilla Edet, Trollhättan, Vänersborg, Brålanda, Åmål and Alingsås.

Medpro Clinic Group is a privately held healthcare company specializing in primary care health centers and rehabilitation in Sweden, for the time being located in the Västra Götaland Region, where Gothenburg makes it the number two most populated part of Sweden only surpassed by the Stockholm Region. The founders of Medpro are medical doctors and one of the co-founders, Dr. Hans Wittrup, M.D., Ph.D., is still President and CEO of the Group. Medpro also recruits, socially and culturally integrates healthcare professionals. As a matter of fact, Medpro was founded in 1998 as a recruitment company and although this part of the Group’s activities were sold off in 2011 the expertise and knowledge for what a successful recruitment looks like is still part of the Group’s DNA. Today recruitment is done for one of our five primary care centers with approximately 230 employees all located 30 – 60 minutes’ drive from central Gothenburg. The clinics are run with a decentralized local management and driven forward by highly professional teams and report to the central management offering financial, human resource, design and architecture as well as general managerial services. All clinics are highly ranked in the yearly national patient survey. The Group is growing at a healthy pace and has just acquired an additional rehabilitation clinic in a new location and is looking at taking over or opening 2-3 new primary care centers within the next 2 years. We believe that a diversified group of people make up the best teams and hence we are recruiting not only in Sweden and welcome your application.
