Occupational health care

The university's occupational health care service is provided by a company called Feelgood. All university employees can consult the occupational health care for work-related health issues.

From Feelgood, you can receive free counselling and examinations. You can also participate in group activities.

You do not need any approval from your manager or supervisor to contact or visit the occupational health care service.

If you need more than three visits, a meeting is needed with you, your manager and Feelgood to plan further measures.

You can find contact information to Feelgood in the right column of this web page.

Open clinic

Feelgood offers an open clinic for university staff, open Thursdays 8:30 to 10:30. At the open clinic you can meet a nurse or a physiotherapist for counselling, assessment or booking appointments for example with a psychologist.

The physiotherapist can help you with issues regarding your musculoskeletal system.

The nurse can test your blood value, blood sugar and total cholesterol, measure your blood pressure or test your hearing. You will also meet a nurse if you have issues with stress or your work environment.

Please note that waiting times can be quite long, depending on how many people visit during drop-in hours.

Group activities

Each semester, Feelgood holds group activities. The group activities offered are based on the results of the university's employee survey and are therefore specially designed for the employees of the university.
