We educate doctors, nurses, dentists and a range 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 dentistry.

Much of our research and education takes place on Campus Medicinareberget, which is shared with the health care services, primarily at the Sahlgrenska University Hospitals. In odontology, we have a corresponding collaboration with the Public Dental Service's in Västra Götaland.

The dean is Jenny Nyström, in physiology with a particular focus on molecular and functional studies of kidney function.

Campus Medicinareberget

The Sahlgrenska Academy is located for the most part on Medicinareberget, which is close to the Sahlgrenska University Hospital area between Guldheden and Linnéstaden. Medicinareberget is also home to Public Dental Service's specialist clinics. Some training is outside the campus area, at Sahlgrenska University Hospital's three hospitals, Sahlgrenska, Östra and Mölndal.

The training in medicine, healthcare and dental care is mainly conducted in Medicinarelängan, at Hälsvetarbacken and at Odontologen. In all these buildings there are lecture halls, group rooms and computer rooms.

The faculty's clinical training centre, KTC is situated at Hälsvetarbacken. KTC consists of several patient rooms, an emergency room, operating room, X-ray room, speech and hearing lab, CPR room, conversation room, creative room, medicine room, lavatory, storage room and several small rooms where you, as a student at Sahlgrenska Academy, can practice practical handling, care of patient, conversation and team collaboration.
