Senior Lecturer in General Medicine combined with employment as a Specialist Physician in General Medicine
Ref PAR 2024/43
The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract researchers and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.
The Institute of Medicine comprises four departments, including Community Medicine and Public Health, which includes general medicine. General medicine faculty teach in the medical programme and conduct research, development and innovation activities as well as education in collaboration with Region Västra Götaland, as well as other national and international research teams.
General medicine makes up a large part of the medical programme, and will play an even greater role in the new redesigned programme. The new medical programme includes an additional semester centred on clinical practice, with primary care as a key component. Thus, general medicine faculty have a unique opportunity to influence future generations of physicians!
Researchers in general medicine collaborate closely with Region Västra Götaland’s four university health care units (USVE) for primary care, including more than 200 healthcare centres. Our partnership with USVE provides a clear structure, management, and financing. Most of our doctoral students are recruited from primary care in the region, and within USVE there is a clear path from student to associate professor. As part of this collaboration, we also conduct courses in scientific methodology for primary care staff.
Our research spans a wide range of topics and we welcome research projects in new areas. Some examples of strong research groups we have today are those that research mental health, women's health, cardiovascular disease and infectious diseases.

Subject area description
At the core of general medicine is the meeting between physician and patient. Practitioners in this field must possess the competence to meet people of all ages with all kinds of health-related problems and independently assess and treat them, including conditions that are not defined as illnesses. In this role, it is necessary to take a long-term perspective on patients’ health and offer treatment with consideration for the multitude of factors that influence a person’s health and well-being. General medicine requires both broad and specific medical competence, an understanding of human nature, and comprehensive knowledge of biology, disease, healthcare organisation, and society. The field has its clinical basis in primary care and is expected to remain a significant part of future health and medical care.
Job assignments include teaching and course management in the medical programme at Sahlgrenska Academy, as well as clinic-based teaching in collaboration with healthcare providers within Region Västra Götaland. Supervising students and other teaching may also be included.

Duties also include conducting independent research within general medicine and in collaboration with others, including Region Västra Götaland’s four university healthcare units (USVE) for primary care. The candidate is expected to actively seek external funding as a primary investigator and in collaboration with other groups to establish and support their own research group.
Clinical duties may vary and will be carried out within the framework of a combined position as a specialist physician in general medicine in agreement with Regional Health in Region Västra Götaland. An important part of this role will be clinical duties at a healthcare centre in Region Västra Götaland. Supervision of resident physician projects or similar work may be included.
This position also includes some administrative tasks related to course management, teaching, research, and clinical duties.
The eligibility criteria for employing teaching staff are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance and in the Appointment Procedure for Teaching Posts at the University of Gothenburg.

According to the Higher Education Act, Chapter 3, Section 8, joint employment may only be held by a person who meets the eligibility requirements for both positions.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in a medical subject or another subject the employer deems equivalent, demonstrated pedagogical skills, a medical degree, and specialist competence in general medicine. The ability to teach in Swedish is also required.
In accordance with the National Board of Health and Welfare’s guidelines, applicants must meet the requirements of adequate knowledge in Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian to obtain a Swedish medical licence.
