The Sustainability & Health Corpus is designed to support research-led educational programmes in modern medicine and global health delivered by SHE, as well as activities organized in collaboration with partners at the European University Alliance Circle U. It is also envisaged as a freely accessible resource from which the entire international academic community can benefit, especially students, researchers and clinicians faced with the requirement to incorporate sustainability values and principles into comprehensive medical decisions.

This national student-run programme is supported by SHE in collaboration with the Norwegian Medical Association and their Choosing Wisely («Gjør Kloke Valg») campaign. The programme brings the students into dialogue about real-life sustainability dilemmas in clinical decision making, challenging their normative, systems-oriented and future oriented thinking skills as they engage with the full sustainability agenda for health. The programme consists of an educational part and a project assignment that is supervised by a senior researcher.
