The dream of studying medicine
The fight for study slots in human medicine is a well-known complaint worldwide. For years, far more students apply to study medicine than there are slots available. Therefore, they have to wait a lot of time until they are admitted to a university. Over the years, due to the big number of high-school graduates the situation has deteriorated further.
Great solution – going abroad
For many high school graduates, going abroad is a great opportunity to fulfil their dream of studying medicine. Moving to a foreign country is a unique experience for many high school graduates.

The new branch of an established university
You can fulfill your dream of studying medicine at the University Targu Mures Medical Campus Hamburg (UMCH) – in Germany, without a waiting period or admission restrictions based on school grades. UMCH is a branch of the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Targu Mures (UMFST) in Romania.
The study program at UMCH was conceived in accordance with the values and the experience of a prestigious and traditional university that has stood for excellence in research and teaching for so many years. The campus offers an innovative educational concept in an attractive location that is conceived in accordance with the latest state of the art in science. The campus in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld is over 4,000 m² in size and has an excellent teaching and learning infrastructure, like a virtual 3D anatomy and dissection table as well as high-tech lecture halls, seminar rooms and laboratories.
The medical studies offered in Hamburg are the international study program of a renowned top university with over 70 years of experience in teaching and research. For more than half a century, the university has been successfully training physicians, thereby relying on a study concept that combines research, teaching and practice. As a result, UMCH is not a newly founded university, but the international branch of an established university. Thus, UMCH is based on proven and reliable university structures.
UMCH offers its students a high-class practical and science-oriented education. Besides the imparting of knowledge by renowned lecturers, great importance is attached to the development of psychosocial skills in medical education. In addition to the close connection between theoretical basic subjects and clinical practice, these are elementary on the way to the medical profession.
Innovative educational concept
With the introduction of UMCH, a forward-looking training concept for prospective doctors has been developed that enables you to study medicine in an excellent international environment – without waiting time. The admission procedure is simple and quick.
The study concept promotes students both professionally and personally. In medical teaching, the university pursues a holistic, interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and patient-related approach. Students should be encouraged constantly to think in a critical way and to exchange ideas among themselves and with their teachers. In addition to the professional qualification of the students, personality development and the systematic advancement of individual strengths and talents play an important role on the campus in Hamburg. The transfer of social, cultural and ethical values to society is also an essential part of medical teaching.
Promotion of talent
At UMCH you are studying at a state university while enjoying the advantages of a private university. Because the courses take place in small groups, you benefit from more intensive and personal guidance than in a lot of state university, where you usually have to share lecture halls and professors with hundreds of fellow students.
Studying in English
The language of instruction is English – high school graduates usually have sufficient language knowledge to study medicine in English. This should not concern you – after all, most of our students are not necessarily native speakers. Besides, medical terminology is also taught in the first year. In the case of teaching at the bedside in German teaching hospitals, the language of education is, of course, German.
Studying medicine in English offers numerous advantages and opportunities. In order to keep up in an international research context, a solid knowledge of English is mandatory, as English is the standard for leading publications and symposia. By dealing with the English language on a daily base in everyday student life and when communicating with international students, language skills are continuously trained and developed. Thus, the students lay the foundation for a successful medical career and can practice in Germany as well as abroad without any problems after graduation. Fluency in English is also an important skill for communicating with patients whose mother language is not German.
