Medical University of Graz

  • Description
  • Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz — A young uni­ver­sity with a long-​standing tradition

    The core com­pe­ten­cies of the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz are high-​standard train­ing and edu­ca­tion, research at an inter­na­tional level and con­tin­u­ous improve­ment of top-​quality-​medicine. Addi­tion­ally, the ori­en­ta­tion toward the bio-​psycho-​social model is one of the main con­cerns of the university.

    Inter­na­tional Relations

    The Inter­na­tional Rela­tions Office is respon­si­ble for fos­ter­ing and estab­lish­ing inter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tions. We are a service-​center for inter­na­tional affairs.

    We facil­i­tate the mobil­ity of stu­dents, teach­ing staff and admin­is­tra­tive staff.

    The Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz has Eras­mus coop­er­a­tions with over 50 uni­ver­si­ties from 18 coun­tries all over Europe. We are also proud of our tight and well-​working rela­tion­ships with med­ical col­leges in Aus­tralia, China, Canada, Egypt, Indone­sia, Japan, Mex­ico, New Zealand, Rus­sia, Thai­land, USA and Viet­nam in which we exchange stu­dents doing clin­i­cal
    elec­tives. Please see our map of cur­rent joint projects.

    Post­grad­u­ate School – Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Education

    The Post­grad­u­ate School offers dif­fer­ent types of con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion pro­grammes at the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz.University train­ing courses (“Uni­ver­sität­slehrgänge”) as well as sem­i­nars, sym­posia, con­gresses and the Observer­ship Pro­gram belong to the range of con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion pro­grammes. The Post­grad­u­ate School acts as an inter­face between the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz and the con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion pro­grammes of the university.

    Being a ser­vice cen­ter, the Post­grad­u­ate School offers an overview of the con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion pro­grammes at the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz. Besides, ser­vices for university-​internal orga­niz­ers of con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion are offered.


    Research at the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz – future tech­nolo­gies and high-​tech now

    Research is the major task of the uni­ver­sity. Among edu­ca­tion of health pro­fes­sion­als and first class patient care the med­ical uni­ver­si­ties and uni­ver­sity hos­pi­tals focus on gain­ing knowl­edge on dis­eases and their ori­gin as well as pre­ven­tion and ther­a­pies. This sci­en­tific research is the basis for progress in med­i­cine, by inves­ti­ga­tion of phys­i­o­log­i­cal processes, decod­ing of genes and their func­tions, devel­op­ment of new surgery tech­niques and the test­ing of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals for new medica­ments. Today and in its long tra­di­tion the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz has been com­mit­ted to sci­en­tific med­ical research. At the uni­ver­sity hos­pi­tal and in the pre-​clinical insti­tutes and cen­tres researchers are work­ing on cur­rent top­ics with state-​of-​the-​art meth­ods and so con­tribute to med­ical and biotech­no­log­i­cal progress every day.

    Suc­cess­ful research with long stand­ing tradition

    Die Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Graz is look­ing back on a long stand­ing tra­di­tion of suc­cess­ful and inter­na­tion­ally respected research. Three Nobel Lau­re­ates orig­i­nate from Graz:
