Professional groups

A dedicated team of physicians and psychologists work in a creative work environment. Our aim is to provide superlative treatment for our patients. A basis for this is the thorough clinical training of our medical and psychological staff.

We offer our medical staff an exciting job involving a broad spectrum of both disorders and multimodal therapeutic possibilities. Due to the close link between patient care and research at the CIMH, the clinic offers the option of participating in clinical and scientific studies.

At the CIMH, physicians that have scientific interest and plan an academic career will find a broad range of themes and an opportunity for postdoctoral qualification. The stated goal of the ZI is to effect excellent research. The promotion of the scientific careers of our employees - for example, by participating in international conferences and through advanced training opportunities - are an important building block.

For nursing personnel, patients and their personal concerns are the focal point of their professional activities. This dedicated and supportive attitude makes it possible for each patient and his family to establish a solid therapeutic relationship. Individual support is provided in the sense of primary nursing care. Promoting the health and, in particular, the independence of our patients, is highly important to us.

With their competences, our nursing personnel are integrated into the processes of nursing care. With a broad spectrum of well-defined tasks, they participate in treatment in a context of patient-centered, innovative and scientifically-based care.

Together with cooperation partners, psychiatrically relevant training in dual training forms (pediatric and residential nursing, social pedagogy) and practical training in the nursing professions (nursing/pediatric nursing/geriatric nursing) takes place with qualified practical instructors/mentor.

For the professional development of our employees, participation in adolescent psychiatry is possible. In addition, internal training courses are offered on current issues. Participation in external training is supported.

According to our multi-professional-oriented concepts, in our clinics, in addition to medical and nursing personnel, there are also psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social educators, social workers and educators are integrated into the treatment processes. The continuous development of specialised professionalism through focused continued and advanced training - internally and externally - has a high priority to us.
