The Zurich learners and students of the health professions should relieve the hospitals that take care of Corona patients.
For example, the 650 students of the nursing high school from the Careum educational center in Zurich and the center for training in health care in Winterthur spend three days more per week in practiceas the association of Zurich hospitals wrote in a message.
In addition there are 2756 people who are currently training to become health specialists, 210 students from the higher technical schools in biomedical analysis, medical-technical radiology, surgical technology and activation therapy as well as students from the department
ZHAW health with nursing, midwives, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Overall, the health care facilities are thus 5000 additional working days per week available.
The prospective health professionals will now follow their lessons to a reduced extent and at the same time will be available to an increased extent in their training companies in the healthcare sector. The education centers are encouraged to offer distance learning for learners and students “as long as possible”, the message says. (sda / pu)
