Healthcare Management (B.Sc.)

The Healthcare Management degree programme combines the fundamentals of business administration and method competence with comprehensive practical knowledge of the healthcare industry. By focusing on scientific and methodological topics, empirical social research as well as a range of scientific theories and concepts, this business programme specially designed to meet the demands of the healthcare industry is one-of-a-kind in Germany. Internships, projects with real clients, fieldwork, case studies and guest speakers from leading companies and organisations in the healthcare industry are fully integrated in curriculum. After receiving their degree, graduates are qualified to work throughout the healthcare sector, in businesses such as clinics, rehabilitation and restorative health centres, medical and pharmaceutical companies, as well as for health insurance companies and other service providers.

Physiotherapy (B.Sc.)

Structural changes within the healthcare system have increased the occupational demands on physical therapists. A scientifically sound and interdisciplinary approach, alongside fundamental knowledge of business management, has increasingly grown in importance. The cooperative education programme in Physiotherapy at Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences, offered in collaboration with the Technical College for Physiotherapy at the RoMed Clinics in Wasserburg, addresses these needs. Practical and theoretical content go hand-in-hand throughout the curriculum, and students receive extensive preparation for their future careers through practical seminars as well as internships at institutes of health such as hospitals, physical therapy clinics and rehabilitation centres. Upon completion of their studies and bachelor’s thesis, students may take the state licensing exam for physiotherapists.

Nursing (B.Sc.)

The result of society’s altered age structure and with it advancing demographic change is an enormous shortage of skilled staff in the healthcare sector. In order to counter this, the Federal Ministry of Health is promoting academic training that supports evidencebased action and efficient work organisation. Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences is committed to assisting with this and offers a Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Nursing with integrated training. Intensive practical training in interaction with patients and solid academic teaching on theory form the framework of a successful education.
