Research and teaching
In addition to patient care, the basic duties of a wellbeing services county include research and teaching. Research and development work ensures high-quality and safe patient care in line with the latest health science data and good treatment practices.
All doctoral students must have the doctoral study right. The University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS) website provides information about applying for the right to study, doctoral studies, and the processes to follow in the final stage of those studies. Population-level research, connective and support tissue research, cardiovascular research, and genetic and environmental research are particularly strong research areas at Oulu University Hospital.
