Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences is the first Austrian higher education institute to offer interdisciplinary medical degree programmes ...

The Psychology study programme combines psychological and psychosocial fields of application on the basis of a scientifically-supported practice.

* In the course of an amendment to the curriculum, the Health Sciences bachelor programme was redesignated as Medical Science bachelor programme. The course of study continues to meet the quality-assured educational standards of medical training and the innovative structure of its predecessor. The contents have been tailored to the current requirements of a modern, international study programme. Among other things, the medical basics in anatomy, physiology and pharmacology have been adapted and a new module "General Medicine" has been introduced. The implementation of a further special subject / line ("Science and Research") enhances the scientific competences. The adaptation of the curriculum was based on the continuous development in the field of medicine and on recommendations of the Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation AQ Austria.

- submitted to Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria (AQ Austria)

The redesignation is effective for new students as of winter semester 2020/21. Existing students will continue their studies according to the previous curriculum.
