Studying at the Faculty of Medicine
The study programmes at the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University are developed in close cooperation with teachers, students, researchers, and representatives of the health care system at large. Through extensive collaboration, a continuous exchange of experience, knowledge and ideas is ensured. The faculty thus contributes to developments in the healthcare sector, and passes on knowledge and research findings to industry and society in general. Education and research are conducted side by side at research centres located on the Skåne University Hospital sites in Lund and Malmö. This results in competitive, research-based training that builds on the needs of the outside world.
Modern, applied and evidence-based teaching methods are essential to creating the best conditions for learning. The members of staff on our study programmes are actively involved in health care and research, and have undergone advanced training in university level teaching.
Students and teachers from around the world meet in this dynamic environment, creating a vibrant global classroom that gives you a natural platform to work with people of different backgrounds from your own.
The Faculty of Medicine at Lund University is one of Europe’s most research-intensive university environments, covering a wide range of fields from basic experimental research to applied research within the clinical, health and social sciences. Among the faculty’s strongest research areas are epidemiology, diabetes, neuroscience, stem cells and regenerative medicine, and cancer. Lund University is behind a large number of important medical discoveries that have led to better treatments, new drugs and improved diagnostics. The treatment of haemophilia, dialysis and the medical applications of ultrasound are just a few historical examples.
Sweden and Scandinavia have traditionally led the way in sanitation and health care. With its large investments and long-standing cooperation with education, research and industry, the Swedish healthcare system continues to be a role model for many countries.
