It is part of the Kalaidos University of Applied Science, which operates throughout Switzerland with its five departments economics, health, law, psychology, and music. As the Department of Health of the Kalaidos University, the Careum School of Health offers modular education and training programs on its Campus in Zurich, which students can pursue in tandem with their private and working life. The curricula and modules align with healthcare practitioners’ current and future requirements based on constant consultation with students, lecturers, and partners in the field. Vocational transfer tasks and self-directed learning bring benefits both to students and their place of work. The Department of Health pursues research and development into innovativemodels of care and user-centric approaches to healthcare provision, to give impetus to mainly home- and community-based healthcare services.
