Scandinavian countries bring many charms to the lovers of nature and outdoor activities, to those who enjoy balancing work and private life and appreciate history and culture. Excellent working conditions in Scandinavian countries are the result of a society that invests in its members, so the well-being of doctors is as important as the well-being of patients. This means that it is important to use breaks during working hours, to have a daily number of patients to whom the doctor can devote himself, and to invest in further education and specialization. An excellent healthcare system, accessible education and a developed industry ensure that Sweden, Denmark and Norway are the most desirable destinations for life.
