Dear applicant!

The Austrian healthcare system is one of the best in the world and assumes a pioneering role in medical research and development. Numerous Styrian physicians have earned a reputation far beyond the stateÂŽs borders. In addition, Styrian Universities of Applied Sciences offer the best level of training in a variety of healthcare professions apart from becoming a physician.

Austria is considered one of the most livable countries in the world and, in addition to the high standard of the working environment, also offers a wide range of leisure opportunities.

We would be glad to welcome you!
