Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences will educate the next generation of health scientists and doctors. They will be pioneers in new areas of research and flag bearers for an interdisciplinary approach to health and medicine. They will set new standards for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment, as well as research into 21st century diseases and medical conditions.
Degree programmes in health science, human medicine, psychotherapy and counselling, and neurorehabilitation will develop students' communication, professional, and problem-solving skills. Our network of partner hospitals in St. Pölten, Krems and Tulln will enable us to provide students with a quality-assured, research-led education, and to carry out top-class clinical research with a strong international reputation.
Biomedical engineering and health economics are key focus areas at Karl Landsteiner University. Both of these subjects will be integral to our state-of-the-art curriculum and essential components of our degree programmes and research initiatives. Our graduates will be in a position to understand the implications of innovations in biomedical engineering and deal with the challenges posed by health policies.
Our demand-driven degree programmes with their strong international focus will lay the foundations for first-class education, new professions, valuable research and innovative business. This combination will in turn give patients access to top-quality health services backed up by cutting-edge teaching, research and technology.
The first phase of the University's operations will commence in autumn 2013 with an intake of 65 students. Full operation is scheduled for 2021, when our backers aim to have attracted 540 students.
In addition to satisfying the objectives of the Bologna process, the innovative bachelor and master programmes offered at Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences set new standards in the training of specialist medical practitioners and therapists in four key areas of health policy.
The University aims to play a groundbreaking role in the advancement of health-related science and technology, focusing on four areas of study: health sciences, human medicine, psychotherapy and counselling, and neurorehabilitation.
Our evolving range of courses, which stand out for their international outlook, interdisciplinary design and emphasis on biomedical engineering and health economics, will be a valuable supplement to the courses offered at Austria's public universities.
A team of experts from the public higher education and health service sectors form the University's Degree Programme Advisory Board. The University draws on expertise from the University of Vienna, Danube University Krems, the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, the Vienna University of Technology, Lower Austrian hospital trust NÖ Landeskliniken-Holding and the University of Basel.
