Bachelor’s programmes in the health professions
Seven Bachelor’s degree programmes under one roof
Today's health care system is faced by major challenges: We live longer, and with increasing age our demands for medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation also increase. In addition, with the rise in chronic diseases and mental stress, health promotion and disease prevention are gaining in importance. Medical and technological advances constantly require professionals to adapt to new requirements and place high demands on the health professionals themselves, as well as on their training and continuing education.
