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 highly demanded healthcare profession. With a degree from us, you will become a healthcare expert who 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, person-centred care, 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 particularly proud of our Nobel laureate Arvid Carlsson, who developed his discoveries about dopamine's important role in the brain at our campus.
