We are a total of about 170 employees working at the department. We have an extensive research by our 12 research groups. In 2009, 246 articles were published from our department in international journals and our grants amounted to about 31 million Swedish kronor.
In addition to the research we conduct teaching at undergraduate level. In 2009 we had 518 full-time students at the department's courses. We are engaged in teaching at Med School, Nursing programs, Master's Program in Public Health and a number of courses.
Research Ethics and Bioethics has become increasingly important for Uppsala University. As a result, an interfaculty Centre for Research Ethics and Bioethics (CRB) was established on January 1 2008. The centre is placed at the Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences.
