Education that provides much more than knowledge

To promote continuous learning within the organization, Sahlgrenska University Hospital works closely with Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. An example is the clinical graduate school, which will make it easier for employees to combine clinical work with research. The doctoral students don’t only receive a coherent theoretical education, but also important research contacts.

- I have had very good use of the course, says doctoral student Slavica Janeva.
