Hey all,

I am currently receiving my undergrad in the United States and I am considering applying to a number of Swedish medical schools in the near future. I have been in contact with Karolinska, Lund, Uppsala, and Umea and have found that specific courses are needed for admission. Along with passing the TISUS test and most likely hogskoleprovet, one most also take the equivalent of the Swedish Mathematics D (level 4), Physics B (level 4), Chemistry B (level 3), and Biology B (level 2). I have not received a clear response on what are the equivalent courses at an American university. Could anyone lend some insight on what the listed courses might equate to at the American university level? General Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and College Algebra, or possibly some more specific classes? Any help would be appreciated!

Those are high-school-level courses. In Sweden, medical school is not an add-on after your first degree. You go there directly after high school.

Thank you for the response Willy! As per the admissions counselors at the mentioned universities, non Swedish applicants may use their university science classes to meet the pre-requisite from Swedish upper secondary schools. I am trying to figure out which classes meet the "D" and "B" class equivalency. Thanks!
