Radiologist – Åland – Finland/Sweden


The Åland Islands is an archipelago province at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea belonging to Finland. It is an autonomous, demilitarized region with Swedish as the only language. Only a few of the three hundred islands are inhabited with a total population of 30 000 people. 90% of the population lives on the largest island Fasta Åland, which also includes the capital of Mariehamn. Due to its maritime position, both the summer and winter are milder than in the Swedish and Finnish mainland. The islands are easily accessible from Helsinki, Turku, and Stockholm. The different islands of the archipelago are connected by ferry’s and bridges. The islands are rich in nature, beautifully colored houses, crystal clear waters and panoramic views.

The local hospital has five inpatient wards (internal medicine, surgery and orthopedics, gynecology and maternity ward, pediatrics and psychiatry) and several outpatient departments, with a total of almost 1000 employees.

Currently, the department of Radiology includes two DR laboratories, one dual-energy CT scanner, one top-class ultrasound scanner, one C-arm fluoroscopy device and one DR mammography device, all of which are very modern. Since June 2018, a 1,5 T MRI scanner is installed. The Department of Radiology employs two radiologist, ten radiographers and three secretaries.


On behalf of the above-mentioned hospital, we are currently looking for a radiologist for a full time position. Interested in an employment arrangement other than full-time work is also possible.

The radiology service covers cover both conventional radiography and a broad range of advanced computed tomography examinations such as CT angiography, CT brain perfusion, dual energy CT examinations and CT-guided interventions. Mammography is also performed, including mammography screening with double reading. Besides elective conventional radiography, a significant part of the workload consists of acute cases.

The department offers an interesting and stimulating working environment, where the interdisciplinary routes are shorter than in most other hospitals. Preferably, the applicant possesses a high level of knowledge and a will to develop.

Salary and compensation for duty follows official contract and is on the same level as in central Europe. Vacations and other social benefits are very generous. The local healthcare service will provide assistance in a house or a flat if needed.
