The Medical Center for Health Bad Lippspringe (MZG-Westfalen) near Paderborn is a clinic network consisting of 5 hospitals with different focuses and more than 900 beds. It is a primary care hospital and is mainly dedicated to internal diseases. In addition to specialist departments in areas such as General Internal Medicine, ENT as well as Pneumology and Infectiology, there is also a Pain Center, a Center for Sleep Medicine, a Weaning Center, a Palliative Care Unit and a Mental Health Clinic. Furthermore, the rehabilitation of patients plays an important role at MZG-Westfalen. Among others, a Rehabilitation Clinic for Psychosomatics and Weaning Treatment, a Rehabilitation Clinic for Respiratory and Cardiovascular Diseases, an Oncological Focus Clinic for Follow-Up Rehabilitation as well as a Rehabilitation Clinic for Orthopedics, Traumatology and Sports Medicine are integrated into the clinic network. A school for physiotherapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy (Lippe-Institute) completes the wide range of facilities at MZG-Westfalen. The top priority for every treatment at MZG-Westfalen – apart from restoring physical fitness – is to improve patients’ quality of life. What is special about this UMFST-UMCH Teaching Hospital is that, among other treatments, medically supervised forest, climate and exercise therapies as well as mindfulness walks take place in the 200-hectare Bad Lippspringe healing forest, which is close to the city. At the MZG-Westfalen, our students thus have the opportunity to learn about other forms of therapy beyond conventional medicine and gain new perspectives as part of the clinical-practical units from the third year of study.
