A course of study that's all about you.

Study according to the CORE principle! In healthcare in particular, social and personal skills play a major role alongside technical and methodological skills. In order to promote these crucial areas of competence, you will study with us according to the CORE principle. CORE stands for practice-oriented learning in small groups, with step-by-step acquisition of competencies and personal support from your teachers, who at the same time become individual learning coaches for you. Together, you will not only acquire specialist knowledge, but also work on the very important social and personal skills. We focus on direct communication, personal and close consultation as well as digital exchange and continuous feedback.
