The compulsory elective field of clinical expertise prepares graduates for working directly on the patients. More in-depth knowledge is gained in particular in the planning, execution and evaluation of evidence-based interventions. The course can also serve as preparation for a Master’s degree, specialising for example in individual specialist areas (specialist treatments), or for entry into research or teaching.
Graduates of the compulsory elective field of management are prepared for process control and for assuming budget responsibility in middle management. The students obtain sound management psychology and business skills, and are therefore capable of performing middle level managerial tasks in a range of healthcare operations and facilities.
Possible application areas are acute hospitals from basic through to maximum medical care, rehabilitation clinics, inpatient facilities for the elderly, outpatient nursing and care facilities, birthing centres, medical practices and rehabilitation centres, charitable organisations, state and private medical insurers, healthcare management organisations such as consultancies, software providers, occupational and healthcare policy roles within professional associations and on health policy committees.
The Bachelor’s degree with the compulsory elective subject education directly qualifies graduates to provide practical guidance in health and welfare professions according to the legal regulations. Furthermore, it constitutes the foundation for the consecutive Master’s degree “Education in Healthcare and Nursing”, the successful completion of which enables graduates to perform tutor and guidance roles for example within schools for healthcare professions, and teaching in relevant specialist fields at vocational schools. These concrete future prospects are complemented by diverse possibilities for applying and utilising the educational expertise gained within the respective professional field.
