There is no doubt that there is a heightened need for more medical research in Norway. At the same time, Norway is also dependent on educating more doctors within our own institutions. Precisely because of this, medical research and education is an area of focus at the University of Stavanger.

Establishment of high-quality academic programmes within medicine and health sciences for maintaining and developing a broad and interprofessional approach to health and healthcare services is a part of this initiative. To solve this, collaboration between different healthcare professionals, technologists and other professional groups is highly necessary.

The strengthening of the medical research at UiS takes place in close collaboration between Stavanger University Hospital, the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Science and Technology at UiS. It is also supported by the strategic initiative in HelseCampus Stavanger and the Research Network for Health and Technology at UiS, both of which are strongly involved in facilitating interdisciplinary research within both health, technology and medicine.

Medical education at UiS

The ambition of establishing clinical medical education at UiS is rooted in the network.

The proposed medical education at the university will have an innovative profile that responds to society's need for primary care physicians/general practitioners, as well as the increased need for technology expertise. The programme will focus on the student in both the specialist and primary health services, facilitate a high degree of interdisciplinary collaboration between professions, as well as having high technological content.

About the network

The Interprofessional Network for Medical Sciences is a network for research, and professional and academic development within the fields of health and medicine.

The Interprofessional Network for Medical Sciences is placed at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Stavanger. The network was established in 2018 as a continuation of the Network for Medical Sciences.

The Network for Medical Sciences was established in 2011 as a collaboration between UiS and Stavanger University Hospital (SUS), The Norwegian Air Ambulance Foundation (SNLA), the learning and simulation center SAFER and the Norwegian Chiropractors' Association

The mandate of the network was connected to the development of research and education in health and medicine. The aim was to strengthen health research in the Stavanger region, further develop and supervise candidates in the PhD programme in health and medicine, and to develop interdisciplinary degree programmes. This includes the pre- and in-hospital advanced acute medicine. The mandate was largely achieved during the seven year period from 2011 to 2018.

The focus acute medicine became a central task for the Network for Medical Sciences. A master’s degree was established within Prehospital Critical Care (PHCC). The programme was first established as a further education master at UiS-EVU in 2014. In 2016, it was incorporated in the academic portfolio at the Faculty of Health Sciences.

In the autumn of 2018, a bachelor's degree in Paramedic at UiS was approved at the faculty, and the programme will start in 2019. Members of the network played a key role in the preparation of this programme.
