The National Board of Health and Welfare has mandated universities to perform proficiency tests for all professions that are subject to a licence requirement.
Many, but not all, proficiency tests are divided into a theoretical part and a practical part. The proficiency test usually requires long and intensive preparation.
Umeå University offers proficiency tests for doctors.
Gothenburg University for nurses (in Swedish).
The Karolinska Institute (Stockholm) offers proficiency tests for dentists (in Swedish), physiotherapists (in Swedish), biomedical analysts (in Swedish), Psychologists (in Swedish).
