Excerpted from the Norway Career Guide

There are approximately 122,000 workers in Norway’s health care fields. Norway’s national health sector is organized in three main parts, in addition to private health services:

· Municipal health services
· Regional health authorities
· Public dental health care

Employment Outlook

The demand for health care workers is high in Norway, particularly for dentists and physicians with specialties in psychiatry, anesthesiology and gastroenterology. Norway is also one of the few countries in Europe with a critical shortage of general practitioners. In addition, a lack of skilled nurses is being felt throughout the country.
