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 Karolinska Institutet’s (KI) 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 available for ALL students, regardless of membership in Medicinska Föreningen.

  • Be a neutral and independent instance between you and KI in a possible conflict
  • Help you understand your own rights and obligations
  • Help you with complaints
  • Protect your rights and investigate whether KI follows the rules in handling your cases
  • Take sides in the matter
  • Decide on the matter
  • Instruct or get instructed by units or decision-making bodies at KI
  • Be an appeal body for issues already addressed and dealt with by other entities or decision-making bodies at KI

Never hesitate to contact the ombudspersons, as the work entails supporting individual students as well as improving the environment for everyone at KI.
