Doctoral Program

The School of Technology offer a doctoral program, which includes two research topics: Technology and health and Applied medical technology. These subjects describe and analyze the interdisciplinary links between technology, design, environment and medicine for clinical applications and the work processes that affect safety, health and welfare.

This includes multidisciplinary perspective with theories, models, methods and empirical evidence from science, technology, medicine and social, behavioral and health sciences.

The core of the doctoral program is to promote health and prevent or reduce the risk of injury and illness.

Clinical Innovation Fellowships

The Clinical Innovation Fellowship teams operate in Europe's leading network for the systematic identification of clinical needs and development of solutions to impact healthcare worldwide. The initiative is based on clinical immersion in Sweden and supported by international partner organizations.

The goal of the Clinical Innovation Fellowships is to improve healthcare by identifying clinical needs and challenges gathered during clinical immersion and create solutions to address those needs. Participants have a background within medicine, engineering, design and/or business and work in multidisciplinary teams throughout the program.

For many fellowhip participants, the program is the first step in creating a start-up in the medical technology field.
