The health university
“Sustainable Health Research” is the central topic at the Medical University of Graz. Teaching, research, and patient care under the sign of sustainability with a central focus on prevention and maintenance of health characterize the Styrian Health University. Students, teachers, and employees learn and work with one another according to the principles of the biopsychosocial model, which focuses on people and all their needs. In addition to training future doctors and nursing scientists as well as research into innovative healing methods and health-preserving measures, the University of Health takes on patient care at a high level. Not only students benefit from the great expert knowledge, but the entire population. In the context of media reports, lectures, and numerous events, young and old can use a wide range of knowledge. Postgraduate training for physicians and other target groups round off the wide range.
