The Krankenhausakademie des Landkreises Görlitz has been the central vocational college for medical professions in the district of Görlitz since 1 September 2018. The academy has 280 course places and is jointly run by Städtisches Klinikum Görlitz and Klinikum Oberlausitzer Bergland.
The committed faculty teach the students the broad range of theoretical knowledge required in healthcare and (paediatric) nursing professions. Theory and practical training consists of teaching in 12 specialist and some overarching subjects (e.g. German, English).
Set to run for three years, course graduates have outstanding prospects on the regional and supra-regional job markets. They can work at hospitals, as well as within inpatient and outpatient nursing and rehabilitation facilities.
Through close connections with the training clinics and the excellent collaboration between the various practical institutions, students receive a highly practical and promising education. The apprenticeship contract is concluded directly with our hospital.
