Medical studies in Germany without waiting time

Was ist UMCH

The dream of studying medicine

The fight for study places in human medicine is a well-known complaint worldwide. For years, far more students apply to study medicine than available places. Therefore, they have to wait a lot of time until they are admitted to one university. Over the years, the situation has deteriorated further due to the big number of high-school graduates.

Proven concept 

The medical studies offered in Hamburg are the international study programme 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, it is the international branch of an established university. Thus the UMCH is based on proven and reliable university structures.

The UMCH offers its students a high-class practical and science-oriented education. In addition to the imparting of knowledge by renowned lecturers, great importance is attached to the development of psychosocial skills in medical education. Besides the close connection of theoretical basic subjects with clinical practice, these are elementary on the way to the medical profession.

Innovative educational concept

The opening of the UMCH means the development of a new and innovative study concept for future physicians that enables students to study medicine at a high-quality level in an international environment – without waiting time.

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.
