Welcome to Sahlgrenska Academy, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Gothenburg. We conduct research and education in medicine, odontology and health and care sciences - always in close contact with practical care.

At Sahlgrenska Academy, you have the opportunity to study for a health care profession in great demand. With a degree from us, you will become a health care expert that truly makes a difference in people's lives.

We are open to collaborations that help us see new perspectives and find better ways to prevent and treat illness. Here you will find international research at the upmost forefront. Examples of successful research areas are ageing, cancer, metabolism, neuroscience, obstetrics, odontology, vaccines and virology.

Historically our research has led to great success, for example, dental implants, beta-blockers for heart failure and the world's most sold pharmaceutical Losec. We are especially proud of our Nobel Prize Laureate Arvid Carlsson, whose discovery of the dopamine's important role in the brain was made in our campus at Medicinareberget.
