We are a small department that offers students a small and friendly community environment. We constantly update our teaching based on research which is designed to meet the changing needs of students, employers and society. Collaborations with clinicians are translated into dissertation projects that offers students (undergraduate and postgraduate) real world application of academic knowledge.
