Innovative Health Solutions (IHS)
Innovative Health Solutions (IHS) is an interprofessional semester focusing upon the provision of citizen centered solutions in rapidly developing technological healthcare contexts. Students from around the world will collaborate in the creation of solutions to global health challenges. The semester uses innovative pedagogical approaches to develop intercultural skills and technological literacy. Social, cultural and ethical considerations in relation to technologically assisted health promotion and prevention are reflected upon in national and global perspectives.
Teaching and learning methods can include lectures, self-study, group work, workshops, blended learning, study visits, clinical elements, discussions, student led presentations and other student driven activities. Teaching may also include visiting guest lecturers.
The interdisciplinary collaboration is centered on a problem oriented group project. During the project work students representing different professions and different countries collaborate with respect to relevant professional problems.
The semester is for students studying on bachelor level healthcare programs.
