After his medical studies, Georg Bauer, MD DrPH, has been public health researcher since 1990, in Europe as well as in the United States, where he received his Master and Doctor of Public Health at the School of Public Health in Berkley, California. His research areas include salutogenesis, community-based health promotion, health indicators, as well as occupational and organizational health with a focus on organizational health development (OHD). Currently he heads the Division Public and Organizational Health of the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, University of Zurich and the Center for Organizational and Occupational Sciences, ETH Zurich. The division is committed to a transdisciplinary research approach, combining researchers from diverse fields (Psychology, Sociology, Medicine, Economics) and partners from the field. To establish a sustainable research-practice link, a consulting center for OHD as well as a MAS Work + Health and a CAS in OHD are integral parts of the research division.
From the reviews:"The authors seek to integrate a differentiated base of knowledge in the three important areas of occupational, organizational, and public aspects of health. ... The audience varies from academics in public health, engineering, and medicine to a broader audience. ... The audience may include those who study and act upon improving society relative to work stretching along micro-, meso- and macro-scales. This would be my pick for university leaders willing to sponsor large scale debates and dialogue about society's future in terms of work models." (J. Thomas Pierce, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2014)
