Winter School 2015
For the first time, the ZHAW International Winter School on "Challenges in Interprofessional Health and Social Care" took place from 5 to 30 January 2015 in Winterthur at the ZHAW School of Health Professions.
59 international students from 10 countries, 20 students from Lausanne and about 300 local students learned during role plays, study visits and interactive lectures about collaboration in interprofessional teams, different health and social care systems or how to sensibly act with clients from different cultures. Feedback not only from the students but also from the 18 international teachers was very positive and we are looking forward to welcome even more international students for the next Winter School in January 2016!
