The basic program in Social Work takes place at Departments of Social Work at Stockholm University or at Ersta Sköndal University College and is not offered within our division.

In collaboration with our division, field placements for about 15-20 social work students from these program are offered at the Department of Social Work of the Karolinska University Hospital each year.

The division of social work offers courses on the advanced level. It takes an active part in the the Master Program in clinical medical science. This program is interprofessional, includes skills related to prevention, care and rehabilitation/habilitation for both individuals and groups and aims to reinforce team-work in health care.
