In Sweden, there is currently no formal Health Psychology society. There is, however, a Behavioural Medicine society (currently not very active). Many healthcare professionals (e.g., physiotherapists, nurses) and researchers (e.g., epidemiology, psychology) apply theories and methods from the Health Psychology discipline in their work. To the best of my knowledge, there is currently no dedicated MSc programme in Health Psychology at any Swedish university.
