Umeå is a one hour flight away from Stockholm and a four hours ferry ride from Wasa, Finland.
The city is best explored by bike and housing will be within walking distance from the hospital. The city center is close by and can be reached with a 15 min bike ride or a 10 min direct bus line. 
SOCIAL PROGRAM
The exchange students in Umeå will do their clerkship at the University Hospital of Umeå (Norrlands Universitetssjukhus) which serves the whole of north Sweden (more than 1/3 of the country's area!). The hospital has been awarded as one of the best University hospitals in Sweden.
During the exchange period there will be a group of Swedish medical students prepared to help with anything practical, and they can offer their help very quickly as everything in Umeå is at a walking or biking distance from one another. The social programme may include activities as a guided tour in the city, an international dinner where the exchange students get to share some recipes of traditional foods from their home country, river rafting, (short) hiking, a visit to the moose farm, an introduction to the local sport called "brännboll", restaurants, clubs and anything else the students wish to do. A weekend trip to Stockholm or Finland is arranged as a national activity together with the rest of the local committees in Sweden.
