First and second cycle education KI SÖS

The department provides first and second cycle education within the study programme in Medicine and Nursing. We also arrange Clinical rotations in English in different medical disciplines.

In the light of the current global situation with COVID-19, we regret to inform you that Karolinska Institutet has made the difficult decision to extend the suspension of all incoming exchanges for Clinical rotations into the Autumn semester 2021, due to the remaining strained health care situation in Stockholm.


A number of Clinical rotations are offered in 10 periods throughout the academic year (September-June/July). The duration of the rotation is 4 weeks, full time (6 ECTS-credits) an all rotations require at least 40 hours of work per week. A student can only attend one rotation at a time.

The Clinical rotation consists of clinical work under supervision. Students will have to present a log book and in most cases a written report. There will be an assessment at the end of the rotation. The performance will be graded in accordance with the ECTS grading scale. In addition to the general requirements, specific requirements may apply.
