On the move: Swedish physicians' experiences of the transition from higher education to working life
2003 (English)In: Education as a critical force: myth or reality?, Copenhagen: The Danish University of Education , 2003, 99-99 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The aim of this mainly descriptive study is to sketch out how recently graduated physicians experience the transition from higher education to working life. As a part of a more extensive research project 12 physicians, who had been working for a few months, were interviewed. The physicians were asked to talk about what they perceived as central aspects of their university-education and what they had learned, their experience of the transition and the first encounter with working life. During the qualitative analysis a complex picture of the process has emerged and it is difficult to distinguish any homogeneity in the physicians’ experiences.
