METIS: a Swedish programme to boost recruitment in psychiatry

  • Simon Kyaga

Summary

Psychiatrists are wanting in Sweden and many other countries. Among Swedish efforts to improve specialist training in psychiatry and to make a future psychiatric career attractive is a national course-based project named METIS. An evaluation of METIS courses run between 2007 and 2012 revealed that, in parallel with the initiative, the number of doctors obtaining proofs of specialist competence in psychiatry increased by more than a third. This article outlines current specialist training in Sweden and describes how the 40-hour METIS programme fits within it.
