Mobilization of students

NTNU is requested to send lists of health science students to the Directorate of Health for use in mobilizing health personnel.

The Ministry of Education and Research emphasizes that it is important even during this crisis that education of health personnel follow normal progression. Our most important contribution to the health care services right now is to ensure that our students graduate without delays in the spring of 2020.

Further clarification and updates related to study progression, facilitated practical training, mobilization and exams, are provided by the individual study program. Follow the Blackboard channel for each study program. (Updated 17 March 18:15).
