The 1st of June it was announced that the Faculty of Caring Science, Work Life and Social Wellfare at the University of Borås has gained rights to award doctoral degrees within the area The Human Perspective in Care. This means that all faculties at the university now have the right to offer doctoral degree programmes.

– This is very good news, but it is not unexpected. This is a strong area and a strong application. The rights to award doctoral degrees give us the possibility to continue to develop and profile the area The Human Perspective in Care, which is of great national interest, says Vice-Chancellor Björn Brorström and continues:

– It is very positive and I am quite impressed by the highly-qualified and systematic development efforts that have been undertaken and which have now been confirmed by the assessment group and the Swedish Higher Education Authority (Universitetskanslersämbetet, or UKÄ for its initials in Swedish).

– This is also very positive from a MedTech West perspective as it strengthens the research capacity related to studies involving patients and care professionals among the MedTech West partners, says Leif Sandsjö, researcher at MedTech West and University of Borås.
