Our foundation has been dedicated to the development of Occupational Therapy in the «Greater Zurich Area» for more than 50 years.
It is the successor of «Schule für Ergotherapie Zürich SETZ» – an experienced and renowned OT school in Zurich. It has selected, educated and trained over 1’200 therapists/experts until April 2009. Look here at the Abstract of SETZ !
As OT studies have recently been handed over to the UAS level in Switzerland (University for Applied Sciences). the formerly private higher professional schools became redundant. Today, Swiss German speaking OT is located in Winterthur at ZAHW (UAS: Zürcher Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften in Winterthur) in the Health Department.
As a consequence of this change, the foundation concentrates and focuses on the future of this fascinating profession and dedicates itself to generally promoting and supporting its development and reputation.
