UMCH’s international network of teaching hospitals

In addition to our German network of teaching hospitals, we also cooperate with a number of hospitals and clinics in other European countries. This gives students the opportunity to gain insight into other healthcare systems and cultures. The number of institutions in Germany and abroad where students can take part in bedside teaching during the clinical part of their studies is constantly increasing.


In Spain, UMCH cooperates with the hospital association Union Murciana de Hospitales y Clinicas (UMHC). The facilities of the association are all located near the Mediterranean Sea in the region of Murcia. Here, UMCH students can complete their bedside teaching – at year-round summer temperatures – in hospitals of various sizes, nursing homes or special facilities, such as a psychiatric clinic. So far, they can choose from 15 facilities – a number that can be increased if necessary.
