Advance through research

Research and teaching are the major tasks of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. The Faculty of Medicine consists of preclinical and clinical-theoretical institutes as well as the university hospital.

The central idea is a close multidisciplinary network of experimental and clinical research. Its results are numerous special research fields and multidisciplinary research associations. The five disciplines Medicine, Dentistry, Molecular Medicine, Medical Process Management and Logopaedics count 4.569 registered students at present.

At the university hospital patients are the first to benefit from the latest research results. In case of particular complicated incidents our physicians are consistently able to offer new treatments, which are not available elsewhere.
