Growing populations, longer life expectancies and escalating costs of health are just some of the problems which need to be tackled by future generations. Based on an integrative approach, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences in the Austrian town Krems is educating a new generation of highly qualified doctors and health specialists, creating access to modern professions in the health sciences. To prepare the young experts for their future role the University has brought together four disciplines that have a decisive impact on health policy – health science, human medicine, psychotherapy and counseling, and neurorehabilitation – under the banner of health sciences.
