Students’ and doctoral students’ ombudspersons

Medicinska Föreningen’s students’ and doctoral students’ ombudspersons are independent instances whom you as a student can turn to with questions regarding KI’s rules, or as support in conflicts and other situations that can arise during your time at KI. Matters are treated confidentially, it’s always free of charge and is available for ALL students, regardless of membership in Medicinska Föreningen.

What can the ombudspersons do?What can’t the ombudspersons do?
  • Be a neutral and independent instance between you and Karolinska Institutet (KI) in a possible conflict
  • Help you understand your own rights and obligations
  • Help you with complaints
  • Investigate whether KI follows the rules in handling your cases and protects your rights
  • Take sides in the matter and speak on behalf of the student against KI
  • Decide on the matter
  • Give instructions to or get instructions from units or decision-making bodies at KI regarding how decisions should be made
  • Be an appeal body for issues already addressed and dealt with by other entities or decision-making bodies at KI
