Over the past ten years, the Faculty of Health Sciences has established and consolidated the Institute of Regional Health Research.
The Institute oversees collaborative research projects involving the other hospitals in the Region of Southern Denmark and some of the hospitals in Region Zealand. This is important because the regional hospitals are responsible for treating the vast majority of patients suffering from common diseases.
Research at the Institute covers broad clinical, organisational and learning related research. Courses include clinical education programmes for students at our University of Southern Denmark who undertake clinical internships at the regional hospitals.
