Opening for paediatric ophthalmology specialist in southern Sweden

12. October 2021.

A hospital in southern Sweden is looking for an ophthalmology specialist who has several years of work experience with children or has a subspecialization in pediatric ophthalmology. It is necessary to have quality theoretical knowledge in pediatric ophthalmology as well as motivation for further development in the field. Surgical experience is not necessary, but it is a big plus when applying, while the desire for research training is also appreciated.

This competition is open until the 22nd of October so all the necessary documentation should be prepared beforehand.

About the place of work:

The ophthalmology department has two receptions. As part of one reception, there is an operating room in which surgeries are performed under anaesthesia. The department regularly collaborates with clinics such as paediatrics, radiology and neurology, as well as with other departments of ophthalmology. Patient welfare always comes first, so collaboration with other teams is necessary to increase the quality standard.
