Theme Qualitative methods

Profile area A medical faculty thematic space for senior researchers, teachers and doctoral students active in the field qualitative methods, and others interested in the topic.

The theme qualitative methods was initiated in the spring of 2021. The aim of the theme is to provide knowledge exchange and stimulate debate, increase creative thinking about qualitative methods and to create opportunities for collaboration between the three departments. The seminars given within the theme are interactive and everyone that is currently working with or is interested in qualitative methods are welcome. The ambition is for the theme to give two seminars/workshops per semester.
