Nordplus Network: Medicine in the North (Medisin i Norden)

Nordplus Network: Medicine in the North (Medisin i Norden)

Nordplus network "Medicine in the North" is an exchange network for medical students in the Nordic countries.

The Nordplus Network Medicine in the North is a well- functioning and solid network that has worked as collaboration network since 2002. All the medical faculties in the Nordic countries can participate in this exchange network and the coordinator function rotates between the universities. The coordinator is responsible for applying for funding and paying out the scholarships. Currently 20 universities participate in the network. 

Both academic and administrative staff organize exchange and the academic staff is very important to the Nordplus network. The annual network meeting is an arena for the participating universities to meet. The meeting is attended, both from administrative and academic staff. This makes the meeting close to educational environment and an important quality-measure as exchanges are continously evaluated from different perspectives. The network encourages mobility between partner universities for both express, short and longterm mobility.
