Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Know someone who might be interested? Nominate a future curator of Sweden.

I’m @akutdok in English and @akutdoktorn in Swedish.

This is such an excellent opportunity to discuss the greatness of our nation - and why it is an important part of our culture to diminish ourselves. There will also be lots of tweets about medicine, since that is why I started using Twitter in the first place.

I’m an emergency physician and heavily involved in developing and improving emergency care in Sweden.

I did my second year of medical school in Germany through the Erasmus program. Great to get experience from other countries.
