Medical University of Vienna

Medical University of Vienna – Research institution of international acclaim

Excellent research work of outstanding quality makes us what we are today – one of the world’s leading medical universities. MedUni Vienna is a state-of-the-art research organisation with historic roots, of which we have been justifiably proud for over 600 years.

Largest and longest-standing medical research institution in Austria

MedUni Vienna is not only the largest medical organisation in Austria, it is also one of the most important top-level research institutions in Europe and provides Europe’s largest hospital, the AKH in Vienna, with all of its medical staff.

With its long history and tradition, which covers 640 years, MedUni has developed into a highly modern research institution that covers an area of 40,000 m². It employs a staff of 5,000, of which 1,800 are researchers and 1,600 are medical doctors. Each year 100,000 patients are treated as inpatients in 31 university clinics, 48,000 operations are conducted and 605,000 outpatients receive initial treatment in the day-clinics.

Mission Statement

In its structuring and alignment MedUni Vienna relies on the “triple track” strategy. Research, education and patient care represent the three cornerstones of the university’s system. This enables medical science to respond flexibly to the continually changing demands of the state and society. In the process, maintenance of health as well as therapy, abatement of symptoms and prevention of diseases stand in the foreground.

International competition in relation to medical research and the development of innovative solutions to issues relevant to society such as healthcare or age pyramids are among MedUni Vienna’s core tasks. Also the disciplines of ethics, medical law, care related research, palliative medicine and health economics are of central importance.
