The School of Health Professions is one of the largest educational centres for health professionals in Switzerland. On our campus in the heart of Winterthur we offer training and continuing education programmes as well as Research and development opportunities for nursing, midwifery,occupational therapy, physiotherapy and health sciences.
The Institute of Physiotherapy follows the premise of a research and teaching university with a fourfold performance mandate: teaching at bachelor (BSc) and master of science (MSc) levels; research and development (R&D); continuous professional development (CPD) and physiotherapy services. The combination of teaching and research under one roof is ideal, preparing students optimally for practical, research and teaching functions. This encourages the “new” physiotherapeutic scientific knowledge, acquired through research, to benefit patients and other stakeholders directly.
