Councils, Boards and Committees
At The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences there are established a series of councils, boards and committees, which help ensure that we conduct the best possible research, offer the best possible study programmes, and constitute the best possible workplace for the faculty staff.
These faculty-level councils, boards and committees advise the Dean’s Office and the Faculty Management. In addition, advisory committees can be found at department level and at Faculty Services.
Councils and Committees
In accordance with the Articles of Association of the University of Copenhagen, each faculty has its own academic council.
The academic council focuses on research, education and knowledge exchange strategies and advises the dean on the distribution of faculty funding. In addition, the council is responsible for appointing assessment committees for assessing applications for permanent academic positions, and it awards PhD and doctoral degrees and comments on other important academic matters.
Information about the Academic Council at The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is available on KUnet(intranet for staff and students at UCPH). Persons outside the university requiring information about the council, may contact the council secretary, Academic Officer Bitten Dalsgaard on +45 35 33 15 83 / 20 40 22 68 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Faculty Collaboration Committee (FSU) is appointed in accordance with the Agreement on Cooperation and Joint Consultation Committees in State Sector Enterprises and Institutions.
The committee must contribute to ensuring the development of the collaboration between management and staff, which among other things means that it is involved in work with the faculty goals, strategy, personnel policy, skills development, budget and the psychological working environment.
