MediCarrera was founded in 2003 by Mats Ignell and Nina Paulsson, who are also the owners and still work actively in the company.

Through our 17 years of experience working on behalf of public hospitals, clinics, and primary care centers in different regions in Scandinavia, we have collected insights and improved our process to achieve satisfactory results.

We have achieved these results, with the help of dedicated teams for the different stages of our process.  Our teams all work together with the purpose to make the journey go as smoothly as possible for the candidates and their families.
