Organisation at CLINTEC
CLINTEC:s main activities are undergraduate and postgraduate education as well as research and development. Some divisions at the department almost exclusively handle undergraduate education, while others concentrate mainly on research.
All divisions have in common a close collaboration with a clinic at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm.
The entire human body is represented at CLINTEC, from infants to adults, and from the head (ears, nose, throat, hearing and speech) to nephrology, obstetrics and gynaecology, general surgery, orthopaedics, transplantation, urology, medical imaging and radiography as well as anaesthesiology and intensive care.
In much the same way as the President has delegated considerable responsibility to the heads of departments at KI, the Head of the Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC) has delegated responsibility to the fourteen heads of the divisions/sections.
The Head of Department is supported by an office comprising a personal assistant, Head of Administration, financial administration and HR, and a number of steering groups, Management group, Departmental council, Working environment committee, Undergraduate committee, Postgraduate committee, and Collaboration group.
The Management Group meets about twice a month and is a support for the Head of Departments decision making.
Working Environment Committee
The Working Environment Committee within CLINTEC is an advisory and policy-making body, consisting of members from different professional categories. The group meets four times a year to follow up and revise the action plan and work with the systematic work environment management (SAM).
The Postgraduate Committe at CLINTEC has overall responsibility for the admission procedure to the doctoral programme at the department.
Each department shall have a Departmental Council to deal with matters of a principal or a cross departmental nature. The function of the Departmental Council is to be consultative, to be a forum for dialogue and to anchor the Head of Department's decisions.
The Board of Education (UN) CLINTEC has overall responsibility for the Department's entire educational assignment. This responsibility includes programmes, programme courses at CLINTEC and other programmes, elective courses, independent courses and contract training.
Each division at CLINTEC is led by a professor/senior lecturer assisted by an administrator.
The administrative work of each divison mainly covers researcher support and undergraduate and contract education. It also involves a certain amount of financial, human resource and postgraduate administration along with other general administrative tasks.
The rest of CLINTEC:s administrative work is done centrally, most importantly the day-to-day accounting, financial follow-ups/analyses, personnel matters, postgraduate education and IT/internet. CLINTEC:s Head of Administration has the responsibility for its overall administrative operations. The office of the Head of Department employs a total of five full-time staff, including the Head of Administration. The office is a shared resource able to offer integrated competence on different areas.
CLINTEC:s administrators meet regularly in the administration group to discuss matters and exchange experiences, in order to make sure that administrative issues are dealt with uniformly and in line with KI:s intentions.
