Sahlgrenska University Hospital (SU) is the largest hospital in the country. It conducts world-class research, development, education and innovation for the benefit of patients - today and in the future.

At SU, research is an integral part of everyday life. In close cooperation between academia, clinics and industry, the foundations are laid for healthcare of today and tomorrow.

SU, together with Region Västra Götaland and the University of Gothenburg, was ranked best in the country for clinical research in the 2023 evaluation of the quality of clinical research in the ALF regions by the Swedish Research Council. Research permeates the entire university hospital organization and is a possible career path for our employees.

Competitive education and innovation in healthcare

Our goal is to be the country's leading teaching hospital and offer competitive education together with the University of Gothenburg. SU's highly specialized clinical environment enables learning and development to achieve professional competence, where we also see the student as a future employee.

SU also works actively to stimulate innovation in healthcare, as an integral part of everyday clinical practice.
