Make a difference in people's lives - become essential

At the Sahlgrenska Academy you have the opportunity to study for a health care profession in great demand such as, nurse, doctor, dentist, pharmacist, physiotherapist, dietician, dental hygienist or midwife. With a degree from us, you will become a health care expert that truly makes a difference in people's lives.

The real health care is never far away at Sahlgrenska academy. Both researchers and students often collaborate in teams with other health care professions and experts.

Research that makes an impactHere 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, who's discovery of the dopamine's important role in the brain was made in our campus at Medicinareberget.
