Medical research
at the highest level

The Medical Faculty of Ulm University – a beacon of innovative medicine.

The University of Ulm was founded in 1967 as the "Medizinisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Hochschule Ulm" and is the youngest in Baden-Württemberg. At the Faculty of Medicine in Ulm, scientists and doctors conduct research and teach at a top international level.

The Medical Faculty of Ulm University is an outstanding place for research, health care and education.

In conversation:
Prof. Dr. Thomas Wirth, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Director of the Institute of Physiological Chemistry at Ulm University

Prof. Dr. Florian Gebhard, Vice-Dean and Medical Director of the Clinic for Trauma Surgery, Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Ulm University Hospital

Prof. Dr. Hartmut Döhner, Medical Director of the Department of Internal Medicine III at Ulm University Hospital and Spokesperson of the Comprehensive Cancer Center Ulm (CCCU)

Prof. Dr. Markus Huber-Lang, Director of the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Trauma Immunology at Ulm University Hospital

Our research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of aging and age-associated diseases including hematology and oncology, stem cell aging and trauma and musculoskeletal research with the still little studied interactions between physical and mental health. These priorities are supported by three collaborative research centres and more than twenty other nationally and internationally funded research networks coordinated by Ulm. Research is also strengthened by a broad-based Core Facility concept and an innovative "Ulm Career Track" concept for the promotion of young researchers, both of which have demonstrated their excellence by repeatedly obtaining external funding.

In the area of study and teaching, the courses of study in Human Medicine, Dental Medicine, Molecular Medicine and Molecular and Translational Neuroscience are characterised by modern courses, an extensive eEducation programme and a high degree of practical relevance. In human and dental medicine, the training offers students an intensive patient orientation and includes many interdisciplinary contents in which clinical topics are combined with theoretical content in a practical way. The small group concept, didactically trained lecturers and short communication channels ensure that students are optimally supervised. The direct proximity of the affiliated university hospital, the atmosphere of a campus university and the perfect transport connections from the city and the surrounding area enable a focused study.

Last but not least: You will be researching and studying in one of the most beautiful cities in southwest Germany! The sunny location at the foot of the Swabian Alb, the healthy climate, the lively city with its medieval centre around the cathedral and the proximity to the Alps make Ulm a perfect place to study.
