In liaison with university, hospital and ETH
The geographical proximity of the Careum Campus to the University of Zurich, University Hospital Zurich and ETH Zurich allows collaborations across the individual institutions.
The Careum Campus is situated in the heart of Zurich's university district. It is therefore in an ideal location for realising the Foundation's mission to promote training in healthcare and social services through innovation and development. The fact that the University of Zurich, University Hospital Zurich and ETH Zurich are just next door provides ideal opportunities for building networks between those involved in innovation, research and development for a forward-looking approach to healthcare training.
This physical proximity promotes collaboration across institutions, as regards the training and continuing education of health professionals (at all levels of training), when it comes to devising content for learning and teaching material and providing access to content for teaching and research purposes via the Main Library – Medicine Careum at the University of Zurich.
Projects and examples from practice are presented at lunchtime events and colloquia, creating opportunities for cooperation between institutions and organisations from the university district and the Careum Group.
Research colloquia and the research workshop serve as a framework for discussion, paving the way for self-critical reflection on current research issues, specialist content and research methods. They also help to facilitate more in-depth collaboration with researchers in nursing and health science in Zurich.
As well as accommodating the training institutions within the Careum Group, the Careum Campus offers space for other organisations and institutes involved in healthcare training and research.
