Professors

The departments at Rigshospitalet function as clinical university departments, and are responsible for a number of specialised tasks in the health care sector. Many of Rigshospitalet's consultants are therefore also employed as professors to attend to these tasks. 

​Professors work 50% for the hospital and the other 50% for the university.

In addition to clinical work, assignments typically include development of specialist areas, research, researcher training, as well as evaluation work and teaching, including lectures, exam clinics and exa​​ms, coordinating clinics and symposia as well as other teaching.
