School of Health Sciences
Research and teaching at the School of Health Sciences are aimed at achieving a tangible benefit for patients and professionals. Future nurses and physiotherapists will be involved with people in their living environment, which is why the School focuses on the health care challenges of today and tomorrow: dementia, mental health, chronic care, oncological nursing research and palliative care, and digitalization. The School’s «lighthouses» and competence centers are based on people’s needs - regionally, nationally and internationally. Healthcare professionals work together for the wellbeing of their patients, which is why teamwork across the professions is important for the future. The networking of healthcare professions is unique here in Switzerland and aligns with our School’s mission: we are innovative, high-performing and conscious of our responsibility - always with a view to people's health.
