Top Bachelor Degrees in Global Health in Europe 2017. Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences is the first Austrian higher education institute to offer interdisciplinary medical degree programmes in line with the requirements of the Bologna model. The Health Sciences bachelor programme gives students the skills they need to enter new, cutting-edge health professions, and lays the foundations for developing medical expertise. The combination of courses in human medicine, biomedical engineering and health economics is designed to produce medical experts with state-of-the-art skills profiles. Thanks to a clearly structured curriculum aimed at nurturing professional qualities, programme graduates will have developed interdisciplinary communication and problem-solving skills, and are also in a position to identify and respond to health-related problems. They are able to work effectively in the highly complex public health sector, skilfully discuss problems and take appropriate responsive action. A fully integrated curriculum geared towards enhancing expertise in a diverse range of subjects gives students the interdisciplinary communication, professional and problem-solving skills they require to address medical, biomedical engineering and health economics issues. The Health Sciences bachelor programme is a prerequisite for entry to, but not a replacement for the Human Medicine master programme, which is designed to build on the knowledge acquired by Health Sciences programme graduates. Assessment At the end of the degree programme, students sit a final examination, and are required to write a bachelor thesis which may be used as the basis for their subsequent master thesis and the related synopsis. The bachelor thesis enables students to enhance and demonstrate their theoretical and methods-based skills in relation to medical practice. Students are also expected to show that they can employ appropriate, systematic approaches to produce an academic paper and present their findings – both orally and in writing – in accordance with academic practice. In addition, the structure of the paper should meet academic standards. Curriculum Courses focus primarily on clinical practice, and case studies are used to illustrate theory-based course contents. Small-group learning enables students to develop detailed, problem-centred and patient-focused approaches. Training in professional behaviour and conduct helps students to develop suitable reflective and decision-making capabilities, stamina, a feeling for psychological well-being and a strong sense of responsibility. The focus is also on enhancing the skills required to form interpersonal relationships, to recognise, understand and handle group dynamics, to manage tasks and responsibilities, as well as to identify and deal sympathetically with borderline situations and uncertainty. This in turn supports the students’ interpersonal and professional socialisation. Graduates of the programme are true medical experts, able to demonstrate outstanding medical expertise, clinical abilities and a professional attitude. They will have developed the core competences of modern-day medical practitioners: communication skills, team spirit and a professional mindset. However, graduates can also act as managers, trainers and advocates on health-care issues. Modular courses are offered in all semesters. The timing and content of these courses are designed to meet the requirements for interdisciplinary learning. The modules in years 1 and 2 are designed to promote several different kinds of expertise (basic knowledge, context, skills and abilities, and academic background). Year 3 prepares students for the Human Medicine master programme and training in clinical practice with a series of specialised courses focusing on medicine. The lead-up to these courses begins in semester 4, when students either take a preparatory course prior to a clinical placement and then complete a hospital internship, or gain experience of a particular occupation. Career perspectives The cross-disciplinary structure of the Health Sciences programme enables graduates to develop a unique skills set covering a highly diverse range of health topics. These skills provide an excellent foundation for training in health economics, which in turn opens up career opportunities in areas such as medical documentation. The combination of training in medical and biological principles with technological know-how paves the way for further qualifications in biomedical engineering. The blend of courses in medicine, technology and economics means that programme graduates will also be in strong demand in the pharmaceutical industry. Students aiming to enter specialised occupations such as medical documentation assistant and pharmaceutical adviser have the option of taking advanced electives in the course of writing their bachelor thesis. Entry requirements -Proof of general higher education entrance qualification The proof of general higher education entrance qualification may be fulfilled by one of the following certificates: secondary school-leaving examination (Matura) vocational matriculation examination (Berufsreifeprüfung) general university entrance examination for medical degree programmes (Studienberechtigungsprüfung Medizin) international secondary school-leaving examination that is considered equivalent to one of the aforementioned Austrian examinations: Latin: Proof of completion of a Latin course of at least 10 hours/week at a secondary school – if you cannot provide proof, you will be required to sit a supplementary examination in Latin before taking your bachelor examination Biology: Proof of completion of a biology course of at least one hour/week at a secondary school after the eighth year of compulsory education, or proof of a supplementary examination in biology pursuant to section 124a Universities Act (Universitätsgesetz) in conjunction with section 2 University Entrance Qualification Order 1998 -Proof of English language proficiency with minimum level B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): IELTS (minimum score 6.0) TOEFL (minimum score 87) Cambridge: First Certificate in English (FCE) or an equivalent qualification [-]
