Student and doctoral student ombudspersons

Medicinska Föreningen’s student and doctoral student 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 the student union.
