About The Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences

We are a total of about 400 individuals working at the department. We have an extensive research by our 12 research groups.

In addition to the research we conduct teaching at undergraduate level. In 2009 we had 518 full-time students at the department's courses. We are engaged in teaching at Med School, Nursing programs, Master's Program in Public Health and a number of courses.


Research Ethics and Bioethics has become increasingly important for Uppsala University. As a result, an interfaculty Centre for Research Ethics and Bioethics (CRB) was established on January 1 2008. The centre is placed at the Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences.‚Äč
