Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences (HMV)

The Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences (HMV) is a new department within the Faculty of Medicine. It started on January 1, 2020.

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 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. There is a shortage in some health care professions and we have an important task to fill them in 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.
