The Department of Cariology has produced a simple information material for use in teaching. The leaflet will primarily be used by students of the dentist and dental hygiene program as support in patient-related work. The leaflet provides information on caries in a simple and illustrative way. The illustrations are made by Dan Sebring, PhD student at the Institute of Odontology. The institute will possibly distribute the leaflet to dental clinics and is considering developing additional information leaflets.
In collaboration with the Sahlgrenska Academy Student Union (SAKS), the faculty has produced a survey that will be sent to all students at Sahlgrenska Academy. In the questionnaire, students get to answer how they have experienced the period of distance teaching so far. The experience reported will be used as a basis in the planning of teaching under continued restrictions this fall.
From 1 June the fee for parking at the University’s parking areas will be increased, and from January this year, there is only one type of parking permit, which is valid on all of the University’s parking areas. The parking fee for cars has remained unchanged since 2014 and has therefore not followed the parking fee trend in Gothenburg. The new parking rules state that the cost of using the University’s parking spaces must correspond to the market price for equivalent parking spaces nearby, to make sure it is not classified as a taxable benefit. The fee at the parking areas at Medicinareberget will therefore be lower than the fees at more central addresses. There is now only one type of permit, and this gives permit holders the right to park at all of the University’s parking areas. From 2021, an administrative fee of 100 SEK will be levied for the permit. Read further in the Staff Portal.

From July 1, 2020, Sahlgrenska Cancer Center on Medicinareberget will change its name and will then be called Sahlgrenska Center for Cancer Research, or in Swedish Sahlgrenska Centrum för cancerforskning. The new name has been prepared by the center’s steering committee and decided by the Sahlgrenska Academy’s faculty board. The name change takes place to avoid confusion, since a center with the name Sahlgrenska Cancer Center was formed at Sahlgrenska University Hospital as part of the process for the hospital to become a Comprehensive Cancer Center.
