Practical Training

The programme amounts to 92 ECTS, spread over all the semesters. The practical training accounts for more than half the course.

The practical training can be held in general hospitals, rehabilitation centres and clinics for patients requiring physical or psychic care, home care facilities, preventative medicine centres, with freelance experts in health care and nursing, in the public health service, in surgeries and other medical facilities in Austria and abroad, providing cooperation partners are available who fulfil the criteria for achieving the goals of the course. A cooperation with the school for “General Health and Nursing” operated by Burgenland Medical Institutions (KRAGES) provides students with suitable work placements in hospitals, care facilities as well as facilities for rehabilitation and preventative medicine.
