Our overriding approach to care stresses the central and participatory role of the patient, i.e. person-centered care.
Our major research areas include:
The institute offers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programs as well as individual academic courses within the first and second cycle of higher education.
The institute offers a postgraduate program leading to a PhD degree in Health Care Sciences. More than fifty students have successfully completed the program and have been awarded a PhD degree.
