Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences (HMV)

The Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences (HMV) is a department within the Faculty of Medicine.

Our research areas cover a wide range - from experimental basic research to clinical, social and public health research. Several research projects are extensive with both national and international partners, while others are smaller, but also those with a clear focus on patient benefit.

We are HMV

We are a strong research and teaching institution that brings together the large healthcare programs. Educating future healthcare professionals is an important prerequisite for health care to function. We prepare future healthcare professionals for a changing society where concepts such as "close care", "self-care" and "coordinated care" are discussed.  Continuing educational development and renewal are priorities for our institution.
