Patient-oriented system of values
The aim of UMCH is to train competent doctors. The graduates should be able to meet the requirements arising from new scientific findings and the needs of a constantly changing society – a patient-oriented system of values at the highest level. Our aim is to teach modern medicine that does justice to the complexity of human health and can offer each patient the best possible care in their individual state of health.
Intensive development of personality
For us, knowledge transfer goes hand in hand with personal development. We provide our students with specialist expertise and social skills in dealing with patients. We will grant you the best possible support during your studies by providing the necessary skills and infrastructure for an excellent academic education.
The six-year medical degree program at UMCH leads to a university degree in Human Medicine, which corresponds to the professional qualification listed in Annex V of the EU Professional Qualification Directive and forms the basis for obtaining a license to practice medicine in the EU and many other countries. Our offer is aimed at highly motivated people who want to attain their goal of studying medicine and are not discouraged by the high grades required to study at a state university. We want to encourage and support them individually on their way to achieving their goals. Theoretical knowledge alone does not make anyone a good physician – we rely on a concept combining research, teaching and practice.
At UMCH, students receive an innovative and practice-oriented academic education at one of the most modern campus locations in Europe. Throughout their studies, they are intensively guided by a prestigious team of professors, lecturers and international specialists.
