Instead of taking in supervisors on a consulting basis, the psychology program has decided to hire four supervisors of 25 percent each.

- This means a significant strengthening of our clinical competence. Richard will also have overall responsibility for the treatment courses and therefore has more than 25 percent in his position, says Anna Leiler, responsible for the psychology clinic.

The newly hired supervisors are Cecilia Lindahl, Rickard Stenmark, Gisela Wisung and Håkan Wisung. They have just attended their induction day as new hires and were given a tour of the campus.

Håkan and Rickard have been supervisors here before and know the premises, but for Cecilia and Gisela it was the first visit.

They all feel a pull to the north and are happy to have an obvious reason to go to Östersund.

Håkan and Gisela are married and have a daughter who lives and studies in Östersund, they have recently acquired an apartment on Frösön.

- I love the mountains and long for the north, it may happen that I move, says Cecilia

Rickard grew up in Rörvattnet and took the opportunity to go up the weekend before the meeting to hunt birds in the mountains.

- It was lucky that we had nice weather, because the luck of the hunt wasn't too much of a factor, says Rickard.

It is a group of experienced supervisors who will now supervise psychology students in semesters 8–10 in connection with receiving patients at the own psychology clinic of Mid Sweden University.
