Abstract [en]

In the recent year, concerns about growing shortages of health professionals, in particular nurses & doctors have emerged in OECD countries. These shortages have been met via international migration of health workers. Between 1970 & 2005, the number of foreign-trained doctors has increased at a rapid rate. This development indicates that non-Swedish medical doctors will continue to increase in the years to come. The Swedish Board of Health & Welfare categorizes this group into two subcategories which are used in this paper: (1) doctors trained in EU/EEA-countries, & (2) doctors trained in countries outside the EU/EEA. We used a grounded theory approach for analysing 23 selected articles from professional health journals. Preliminary results from this text analysis study indicate that doctors with training from outside the EU/EEA do not have the same social presumptions as doctors trained in the EU/EEA. Using a grounded theory approach, we have generated a theoretical explanation of the special presumptions of doctors trained outside the EU/EEA. We argue that the members of this group are ascribed a type of cultural capital that differs from the formal competence needed to serve as a doctor in Sweden which effect their professional integration process. We call this socio-professional phenomenon “cultural authorization”.
