The Swedish Medical Association
Swedish Medical Association is the doctors’ professional organisation established to look after the professional and personal needs of our members. Patient safety, the work environment, salaries, working hours, training and research are some of the issues that are of great importance for the organisation.
The Swedish Medical Association enters into collective agreements on behalf of its members in areas such as general employment conditions, which includes salaries, working hours, holidays, sick and parental leave and pensions. Membership of the SMA entitles you to:
• Advice and support in matters relating to your salary, contract, and general working conditions as well as insurance and pensions.
• Help with salary negotiations, and up-to-date salary statistics.
• Legal assistance on disciplinary matters, such as negligence claims or probation, and on general matters of healthcare, tax and labour law.
• Peer support for doctors undergoing a personal crisis.
