Sahlgrenska Academy is the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Gothenburg. We train doctors, nurses, dentists and a number of sought-after care professions. Examples of strong research areas are cancer, cardiovascular disease, women's and children's health, metabolism, neuropsychiatric diseases, person-centred care and odontology.
The Sahlgrenska Life project will develop our main campus Medicinareberget to meet the future needs of students, teachers and researchers. Within a few years, Medicinareberget will be the focal point for the university's activities in Life Science. Much of our research and education also takes place on campus that is shared with public healthcare, especially at the hospitals within Sahlgrenska University Hospital. In dentistry, we have a corresponding collaboration with the public dental service in Västra Götaland.
The dean is Agneta Holmäng, a professor of laboratory medicine.
