What you can offer

You come from the therapeutic or diagnostic health professions and want to develop yourself further both professionally and personally. For this reason you wish to combine your practical experience with science and research and acquire interdisciplinary skills. You recognize the opportunity to improve your work through an evidence-based approach. You approach management responsibilities with this attitude and want to incorporate health economic conditions in your work. It is a personal concern of yours to establish your profession as an academic discipline.

What we offer you

FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied sciences for health in Austria. After the legal framework was created in 2006 to introduce the MTD academies and the midwife academy into the higher education sector, FH Campus Wien launched the first bachelor's degree programs in 2007. Shortly afterwards the first master's degree programs where launched in the Department of Health. Today, FH Campus Vienna now has extensive expertise and a large network at its disposal. An important partner in the areas of education, research and development is the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV). We also work closely with professional associations and regularly host expert events. You will benefit from the state-of-the-art infrastructure of our attractive main campus, which also includes fully equipped function rooms. A highlight is the movement laboratory where force plates and cameras enable the three-dimensional analysis of movements in order to gain a better understanding of movement disorders. Furthermore, at FH Campus Wien you will also have the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary, professional community. There is great potential in research projects at the intersection of health and technology. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.
