The School of Medicine is a multidisciplinary educational and research institution of the University of Eastern Finland. We work in close cooperation with Kuopio University Hospital and various hospital districts and health care and specialist medical care providers in the area. We cooperate with other Finnish universities through the national network of universities, with Savonia University of Applied Sciences being our key partner locally.
UEF School of Medicine organises tuition in the fields of Medicine, Dentistry, Biomedicine, Nutrition and Health Promotion. In addition to Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes, we offer professional and scientific postgraduate education and specialisation studies. The School of Medicine is also an active international educator. We offer two English-language Master’s degree programmes: the Master’s Degree Programme in Public Health and the Master’s Degree Programme in Biomedicine.
The strength of our research is derived from the long-term and internationally acknowledged scientific methods of elucidating molecular-level causes of key chronic deceases, as well as developing methods of their prevention and treatment.
In order to achieve flexibility in operations, the School of Medicine is divided into the following units: Institute of Biomedicine, Institute of Dentistry, Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition, and Institute of Clinical Medicine.
