About us

Welcome to the Homepage of the Medical Faculty

Science and research at the highest international level, and excellent training of future physicians: these are the objectives that the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Duisburg-Essen at University Hospital of Essen has set for itself and that we work hard to achieve.

We’ve taken our key specialties of cardiovascular medicine, oncology, and transplants - which are also core clinical disciplines of the University Hospital of Essen - and added the important generic disciplines of genetics, immunology, and infectious disease management, in which foundational researchers and clinicians work hand in hand. This concentration enables us to produce high-value scientific results that are regularly published in leading international journals. Our students benefit from outstanding mentoring, individual counselling, and an excellent learning environment.

The campus nature of the University Hospital of Essen, with all essential facilities in a single location - clinics as well as preclinical academic and clinical institutes - makes it a great place to combine academic and practical knowledge. Today, in Essen, we are engaged in cutting-edge research on an international level and in teaching students by using the latest educational methods. Indeed, a wide range of diagnostic and treatment processes developed in Essen are now well-established as world standards.
