Region Syddanmark
Region Syddanmark
Region Syddanmarks hovedopgave er at drive det syddanske sygehusvæsen, psykiatriske og sociale institutioner og skabe vækst og gode rammer for vores borgere og erhvervslivet.

Vi ansætter både erfarne medarbejdere, nyuddannede og studerende. Vi har fx gavn af den nyeste viden, for at vi kan udvikle os. Derfor samarbejder vi med studerende på en lang række områder – fx i form af praktikpladser, studiejobs eller projektskrivning.
