Institute of Clinical Medicine

The core functions of the Institute of Clinical Medicine are education, research and social interaction. The education is based on scientific research and is designed to train qualified physicians and other experts within the target time and to help them settling in tasks equivalent to their education.

The Head of the School of Medicine has appointed a person in charge for each academic subject of the Institute of Clinical Medicine. As a rule, the person in charge is a professor; however, in special cases, also a docent may act as the person in charge of an academic subject. The persons in charge of each academic subject are responsible for the education of the institute.

Undergraduate education is offered to students completing the degree of Licentiate in Medicine. Some of the academic subjects also offer education to undergraduate and exchange students of other degree programmes and different years of study.

The facilities and locations of teaching of the Institute of Clinical Medicine are located both in the premises of Kuopio University Hospital (KUH) and in the Canthia, Mediteknia and Medistudia buildings at the Kuopio Campus of the University of Eastern Finland.
