Swedish term or phrase:med både bredd och spets
Oavsett om man arbetar i primärvården, studerar, är doktorand eller handledare erbjuder Centrum för allmänmedicin över hundra olika valmöjligheter med både bredd och spets på grund-, specialist- och fortbildningsnivå.
I'm uncertain of the meaning of this phrase.
offering both leading-edge courses and the full breadth of the field
Explanation: In contrast to Christine, I don't think that they try to imply a balance, but actually a combination of both extremes. Some of the courses they offer really do teach everyhting about a tiny (leading-edge) subject, but they also offer the full breadth of the field.
As usual, as I don't work into English, my phrasing might not be perfect, but I do believe that it conveys the intended meaning. Very wordy compared to the Swedish though.
