The Department of Health Sciences and Medicine was launched on 1 August 2019. The Department reports directly to the rector and is made up of three sections: Health Sciences and Health Policy, Medicine and Rehabilitation.
The Department enables scientific research in its fields to be carried out at a high level. It conducts research-based teaching, enables learning in direct connection with science and prepares its students for lifelong learning. It also promotes and develops new and innovative teaching formats.
Within the section of Medicine, a curriculum is being developed that consistently promotes prospective doctors and creates the basis for qualitative and innovative medicine for the benefit of patients and Central Switzerland's health care system.
The section of Rehabilitation and its associated Center for Rehabilitation in Global Health Systems will focus on strengthening rehabilitative health strategies and researching them accordingly.
The section of Health Sciences and Health Policy is currently establishing a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (scheduled to start in autumn 2021), which will complement the existing Master's and Doctorate program as well as the thematic profiles of the Department.
