The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Gothenburg. Research and education in medicine, odontology, and health and care sciences - always in close contact with practical care.
At Sahlgrenska Academy, you can study for a healthcare profession in great demand. With a degree from us, you will become a healthcare 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 utmost forefront. Successful research areas include 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 incredibly proud of our Nobel Prize Laureate Arvid Carlsson, whose discovery of dopamine's important role in the brain was made on our campus in Gothenburg.
