In 2020, our overall freedom of movement was challenged. Studying was among the affected activities when not utilising resources effectively.
Even before the needed switch to digital came about, our aim at EDU was #digital. Our digital-by-nature approach enables students to learn how they want to and need to, regardless of time and location.
Celina Hutter is one of EDU’s students who commenced her journey to becoming a doctor last February. From the beginning she had a vision of how she can benefit from EDU’s state-of-the-art teaching methods and its profound social impact on the future of medical education.

EDU: What inspired you to pursue a career in medicine?
Celina: I’ve been passionate about healthcare for years. After my first experience in an operating room, I knew that medicine is where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do.
EDU: What do you find different and exciting about studying at EDU?
Celina: Studying medicine in the traditional way can be challenging, let alone at a brand-new institution with a whole new concept but it works so well. EDU is the perfect fit for people with passion and a vision for themselves in the medical field. In my case, it also gives me the possibility to study in English simultaneously and live in my favourite town. The current #pandemic proved (and continues to prove) how important medical professionals are. And, for me, that also includes the #education of medical students. EDU came out on top in this regard by being able to continue teaching just like before due to its digital nature.
EDU: What do you look forward to the most?
Celina: Since the start of my studies in February 2020, I have been filled with anticipation when imagining myself as one of EDU’s first graduates, paving the way for a whole new generation of medical doctors.
