Gastroenterology in Sweden concerns gastrointestinal disorders, as well as hepatology (biliary tract, liver and pancreas), and the most common conditions you will find working in the Swedish healthcare system include oesophageal and gastrointestinal diseases, acute and chronic liver disease and cirrhosis, nutritional upsets, gallbladder disease and bile ducts, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastrointestinal cancer. Endoscopic examinations are important in diagnosis. 

Working as a Gastroenterologist in Norway

The shortage of gastroenterologists in Norway means a growing demand for specialists from abroad. As a gastroenterologist working in Norway, you will treat everything from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to hepatitis C. You will perform endoscopic procedures and make diagnoses. Some gastroenterologists treat general diseases of the GI. Others focus on particular areas like hepatology with diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Specialist doctors in Gastroenterology working in Norway perform a wide range of nonsurgical procedures. This means that if you wish to work as a gastroenterologist, it is essential to collaborate closely with a GI surgeon and other members of the staff. Gastroenterology is considered as a part of internal medicine, so having double specialities is highly appreciated in Norway.

 

Working as a Gastroenterologist in Denmark

Due to the growing demand of gastroenterologists in Denmark, we are searching for medical specialists.

Doctors specialised in Gastroenterology perform the bulk of research involving gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures as well as the interpretation of results. As gastroenterologists deal with all diseases involving the digestive tract, a cross-disciplinary approach and the ability to cooperate closely with other specialists like gastro-surgeons and staff to provide the patient the best treatment and care possible is required.
