The School of Health Sciences plays a leading role in the development and growth of the Icelandic health sector. We offer diverse academic programmes, on undergraduate and postgraduate levels, in six faculties. The objective of the school is to educate competent health care professionals, ready to undertake demanding careers in Iceland and worldwide. We aim to graduate exceptionally qualified professionals who are able to address the fourfold role of the national health services: to provide services to the ill; to conduct research; to teach; and to attend to the services' social role. This entails providing information and encouragement to the public, so people are better able to take responsibility for their own health.
