The Department of Health Sciences has signed an agreement with Region Norrbotten and all municipalities in the county regarding VFU sites for the courses that are given at the department.
The VFU sites we have under agreements are in hospitals and health centers within Region Norrbotten and within municipal operations in Norrbotten's municipalities.
The whole county is our catchment area and the places we have under the agreements are the places that must be allocated for each course. This may involve some travel and accommodation elsewhere during the VFU periods.
When the site access is insufficient on any location, draw is applied.
