UMCH-Lehrkrankenhaus St. Johannisstift in Paderborn

As part of the clinical practical training from the 3rd year of studies, the Protestant Hospital (EK) St. Johannisstift in Paderborn will teach UMCH students in the future. The EK St. Johannisstift and the Medical Center for Health Bad Lippspringe – which is also a UMCH teaching hospital – cooperate with one another and jointly cover all medical areas required for an all-encompassing practical training for future medical professionals.

Around 450 employees look after the well-being of roughly 8,600 inpatients and 11,5000 outpatients here every year. As a foundation hospital, EK St. Johannisstift comprises a total of 11 specialist medical departments – from Acute Geriatrics, Anesthesiology and Surgery to Gynecology and Obstetrics, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery and its own ENT department. In addition, patients receive high-quality medical care at 5 certified interdisciplinary centers. These include a Vascular Center, a Diabetes Center and the Continence and Pelvic Floor Center East Westphalia. However, the St. Johannisstift Foundation not only includes the hospital in Paderborn, but also various facilities for the elderly, children and young people, as well as an educational campus for training and further education. As the largest diaconal institution in the region, it has been making an important contribution to care and medical treatment for more than 150 years. UMCH students can therefore look forward to gaining a variety of insights into working with patients and an interdisciplinary view of a wide range of different areas of care.
