University Medical Center Göttingen
The University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) is one of the largest university hospitals in Germany. Faculty of Medicine and University Hospital form a unity in which excellent research, teaching, and patient care take place under one roof. Priority research areas and a wide spectrum of medical disciplines characterize the faculty. The internationally recognised priority research areas Neuroscience, Cardiovascular Research and Oncology have a strong foundation in basic science and are oriented on the medical need of our patients.
The Faculty of Medicine in Göttingen is one of the biggest medical schools in Germany. Human Medicine is taught in a modern modular, interdisciplinary curriculum. A total of 3.700 students are enrolled, 2.900 in Human Medicine and approximately 600 students in Dentistry and 200 students in Molecular Medicine. A new MSc program “Cardiovascular Research” will start in 2015.
The University Medical Center Göttingen is deeply integrated in the vibrant university and non-university research environment that together forms the Göttingen Campus.
