Section for Health Services Research

Welcome to the Section for Health Services Research, a dynamic and multidisciplinary section deeply committed to addressing both underserved and politically charged topics within the broader healthcare landscape.

As scholars from various backgrounds and disciplines, we draw on a wide range of methodologies and approaches to comprehensively understand the inner workings of health services, how people engage with health services and medical technologies, and what these services and technologies do to people and society. Our keen and critical eyes allow us to uncover unexpected insights, which we draw on in our teaching to inspire and cultivate critical thinking among our students, and to foster meaningful discussions about the implications of our research for medical and health service practices.

We strive to contribute significantly to the enhancement of health services both nationally and internationally. Explore our website to learn more about our research and teaching areas, publications, and ongoing activities.


Via the research themes below you can find an overview of research projects with participation from researchers at the Section for Health Services Research.



To provide students with a deep understanding of the complexities and challenges in contemporary healthcare delivery, the Section for Health Services Research offers teaching in the politics and organisation of health services, patient engagement and safety, migration and health, digital health and innovation, medical technologies, bioethics, theories of knowledge and research methods.
