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.
