Abstract:

Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Iceland form the 5 culturally uniform Nordic countries. Each of the countries owns a high-standard tradition of individual steering in cardiothoracic education aiming at securing the needs and features of the local area. Indisputably, mastering a Nordic language and applying a high-standard individual steering in education ensure that a dedicated trainee is selected to the cardiothoracic program in accordance with the needs and features of the local area.
