Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences educates the next generation of health scientists and doctors. They will be pioneers in new areas of research and flag bearers for an interdisciplinary approach to health and medicine.

Small groups, a strong focus on medical practice and all-round personal support are the standout features of the university’s teaching activities. This gives students the time and space they need to identify and nurture their personal talents and build up the necessary specialist expertise. „We also encourage students to see the big picture and adopt an interdisciplinary mindset that allows them to communicate and work effectively, and identify solutions geared to patient requirements“, says Assoc.Prof. Dr. Manfred Wieser, MSc, study programme director of the medical study programme at Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences.
Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences and its degree programmes received accreditation from the Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria (AQ Austria) in November 2013.
