Bavarian Summer School 2017 - The Future of Health Care

From 24/07/ until 04/08/17 the first summer school organized by Study & Work International, an initiative of the Bavarian Association of Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS), takes place at the Lutheran UAS Nuremberg and the technical UAS OTH Amberg-Weiden.The Future of Health Care: New Concepts - New Technologies is the topic of this two-week interdisciplinary summer school for Bachelor's students from the fields of health care as well as various engineering disciplines

In Summer 2017 the Universities of Applied Sciences Evangelische Hochschule Nürnberg and Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Amberg-Weiden are inviting to the two week interdisciplinary Summer School “The Future of Health Care: New Concepts – New Technologies”. In the last decade health care services have been facing multiple and complex challenges with regards to the demands of an ageing society and complex requirements in infection control. There is consensus that innovative technologies and digitalisation are playing a key role in achieving efficient and effective health care delivery on a high-quality level for European citizens. Nurses are the largest professional group within healthcare. Therefore, collaboration between engineers and nurses as well as between industry and universities are of utmost importance and need to be promoted.
The language of the International Summer School will be English enabling 40 students from the fields of nursing and health as well as medical and engineering specialties to exchange on, understand and learn about the following current issues the health care sector is facing:
• Digitalisation
• Infection Control
• Ageing Society
Learning together in an international group fosters the participants’ ability to develop ideas for innovative technologies in health care whilst considering socio-cultural, ethical and professional aspects as well as differences in health care systems.

The Bavarian Summer School takes place at the Lutheran University of Applied Sciences Nürnberg and the OTH Amberg-Weiden - Technical University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Medical Engineering Weiden. The region combines a beautiful historical setting and landscape and a strong and innovative economy. High tech companies and institutions in the health care industry are gathered in the European Metropolitan Region of Nuremberg. The Medical Valley EMN is a cluster with more than 500 companies active in medical technology, 65 hospitals and many research institutions. It is an international model region of optimized healthcare provision.
