This is the website of Salus ry, the subject association of health sciences at University of Tampere.

Salus was founded in 2011 when the subject associations of nursing science and public health science merged together. Our task is to connect the students of health sciences together and create a good atmosphere to study. We help our members to network with other students and different organizations related to social welfare and health care. We arrange activities and events such as seminars, excursions and social evenings for our members and all the students of health sciences at University of Tampere (UTA). We also serve as a link between the students and the members of staff at UTA.

International students are very welcome to join us and our events! Most of our information is in Finnish but our goal is to communicate more and more in English as well. If you have any questions about Salus or you need help with your studies, don’t hesitate to contact our Executive Board Members! You can find the contact information here.

You can become a member of Salus if you are studying health sciences at UTA. Joining is easy, simply pay the membership fee and send your contact information to our secretary! See the full instruction on how to join Salus here.
