About the Department

The Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine was formed about 10 years ago and consists of the following divisions; Family Medicine, Dermatology and Venereology, Epidemiology and Global Health, Medicine (here cardiology, respiratory medicine and rheumatology are included), Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and Nutritional Science. The department also includes Umeå International School of Public Health.

The department is of considerable size and the divisions are scattered at various locations within the University Hospital, and there is no common facility for the entire department.

The undergraduate teaching of the department is primarily within the MD-programme. The Master programmes are largely within the Umeå International School of Public Health and in occupational and environmental medicine.

The research performed within the department covers a very wide range of areas.
A large number of research groups are present, all with their specific interest areas. However, many collaborative projects exist both within and between the different divisions.
In addition, a substantial number of clinicians from the University Hospital are affiliated with the respective divisions.
The number of graduate students are around 130 and the number of permanetly employed of all categories are around 180.
