CLINTECs main activities are undergraduate and postgraduate education as well as research and development. Some divisions at the department almost exclusively handle undergraduate education, while others concentrate mainly on research.

All divisions have in common a close collaboration with a clinic at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. The entire human body is represented at CLINTEC, from infants to adults, and from the head (ears, nose, throat, hearing and speech) to nephrology, obstetrics and gynaecology, general surgery, orthopaedics, transplantation, urology, medical imaging and radiography as well as anaesthesiology and intensive care.

In much the same way as the president has delegated considerable responsibility to the heads of departments at KI, the Head of the Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC) has delegated responsibility to the fourteen heads of the divisions/sections. The Head of Department is supported by an office comprising a personal assistant, administrative manager, financial administration and IT, and a number of steering groups (management group, departmental council, working environment committee, undergraduate committee, postgraduate committee, and a collaboration group).

Departmental Council

Each department is required to have a Departmental Council to deal with issues of fundamental importance or of a meta-departmental nature. The Council is to serve as an advisory body and a forum for dialogue and for the Head of Department to anchor his/her decisions. A Head of Department has to take decisions on a number of issues of concern to different groups in the department, and it is his/her job to consult these interested parties and seek their acceptance and approval of the decisions he/she takes. The Departmental Council is such a platform, and one at which the representatives of different groups can meet.

It is essential that the Departmental Council has all-round representation that takes into careful consideration the balance between research and undergraduate education, equality, technical/administrative personnel and students. It is important that the composition of the Council allows the different representatives to have their opinions and professional experience taken into account and their voices heard.

Each unit at the Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC) is led by a professor/senior lecturer assisted by an administrator. Two-thirds of CLINTECs administrators are employed at their particular unit, and work directly under a unit manager.

The administrative work of each unit mainly covers researcher support and undergraduate and contract education. It also involves a certain amount of financial, human resource and postgraduate administration along with other general administrative tasks.

The rest of CLINTECs administrative work is done centrally, most importantly the day-to-day accounting, financial follow-ups/analyses, personnel matters, postgraduate education and IT/internet. CLINTECs administrative manager has responsibility for its overall administrative operations. The office of the Head of

Department employs a total of five full-time staff, including the administrative manager. The office is a shared resource able to offer integrated competence on different areas.

CLINTECs administrators meet regularly in the administration group to discuss matters and swap experiences, in order to make sure that administrative issues are dealt with uniformly and in line with KIs intentions.

Central administration


The central Cooperation for Development agreement provides the departure points, objectives and policy-basis of KIs local cooperation agreement.

Cooperation is fundamental to the work done by the Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC), in terms as much of everyday issues as of its long-term development. The objective is to help lay the groundwork for a working climate recognised for its transparency, involvement and efficiency. This can only be achieved with the genuine influence of the employees.

Cooperation entails the management and staff having an all-inclusive view of the business that integrates participation, personnel policies, work environment and equal opportunities. Cooperation takes place through consultation, which involves information, dialogue and discussion at the early stages of all decision-making in CLINTECs cooperation group. This requires the participation of the management and the employee organisations.

The greater employee participation and the exploitation of knowledge and competence creates opportunities for developing CLINTEC in a way that benefits management and staff alike.

Cooperation is to take place on the issues covered by the information and negotiation obligations embodied in the Co-determination at Work Act (MBL), thus replacing the responsibilities of the employer as set forth in sections 11, 12 and 19 of this Act and the exemptions specified in section 5
