Growing population, higher life expectancy, rising costs in medical and therapeutic care as well as a great demand for interdisciplinary trained specialists in the field of health sciences - the health of the future demands new perspectives! The Karl Landsteiner Private University for Health Sciences (KL) sees itself as a pioneer and catalyst for innovative, socially relevant teaching and research areas in medicine and health care in order to contribute to dealing with social challenges.
The social task and obligation
KL is one of the youngest private universities in Austria, founded in 2013 in Krems. We train and educate the health scientists, doctors and psychologists of tomorrow and see the concept of health in the broadest possible form. Socio-economic framework conditions, psychological aspects or changes in our living conditions relevant to the environment: In the sense of a contemporary view on health and illness as the key to physical, mental and spiritual well-being, KL brings key fields of health policy under a common, unifying roof of health sciences and implements these contents in research and teaching.
Interdisciplinary, integrative and international
With its Bachelor-Master system, which is recognised throughout Europe, KL sees itself as a flexible educational institution that is tailored to the needs of students and the demands of the labour market: KL students receive academic training to the highest quality standards and graduates possess intellectual, scientific and social skills that make them sought-after specialists in the health sector.
In research, KL guarantees open, application-oriented basic research at the highest level. KL conducts internationally competitive, translational and clinical research and concentrates on niche fields in health-politically relevant bridge disciplines such as medical technology, psychodynamics and psychology as well as the topic of water quality and the associated health aspects.
Your commitment to health with a future
Among the main sources of funding for the KL are tuition fees, income from funded research projects, contract research as well as contribution for cost coverage by the state of Lower Austria. The non-profit Karl Landsteiner Private University of Health Sciences GmbH does not receive public federal funds. Raising funds via donations or grants enables KL to promote and implement exceptional projects, programs and initiatives.
