Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital

Specialist Hospital/Clinic | Stockholm, Sweden

Hospital description

The Karolinska Institutet is the medical school responsible for research and education, also separate from us but in tight collaboration.

For electives at the Karolinska, there has to be collaboration under contract between the “home” university and the Karolinska Institutet. No elective at the Karolinska can be arranged without this. Thus, I advice you to contact the Karolinska Institutet for further information.
Unfortunately this means that you will check with your university if there are any connections between the two universities and if not an elective here will not be possible.

Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital in Solna and Children’s Hospital in Huddinge have merged into one pediatric hospital within the organisation of Karolinska University Hospital.

The hospital was opened in 1996 as part of Karolinska Sjuknuset. One of the biggest children’s hospitals in Northern Europe, it is a new hospital with excellent facilities.

The departments at the hospital are divided into following areas:

  • Children’s Emergency Roo
    The emergency room at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital and the Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge provide emergency medical care.
  • Neonatology
    The Department of Neonatology treats diseases in children during their first weeks of life.
  • Orthopedics, Surgery & AHC
    Pediatric orthopedics at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital consists of an inpatient ward, a day care unit and a surgical ward.
  • Pediatric Anesthesiology and ICU
    The operation is responsible for anesthesia, intensive care and pain treatment for children.
  • Pediatric Surgery
    They treat patients with pediatric surgical diseases. This includes patients with inherited defects of the urinary tract or chest and abdominal region, as well as those with other surgical diseases and complications during infancy or later in childhood and adolescence.
