Graz, Austria
Sustainable health research is the central theme at the Medical University of Graz. The Styrian health university is characterised by sustainability in teaching, research and patient care with the main focus on prevention and preservation of health. The training of future doctors and health scientists at the Medical University of Graz is marked by innovative teaching concepts, practical teaching in small groups and the development of new teaching and learning forms.

About

History

The faculty of medicine at the Karl-Franzens-University of Graz was established in 1863 by Franz Joseph I. In 2004 the former faculty became an independent university.

Education

Students, instructors and staff learn and work together according to the principles of the biopsychosocial model, which places the person with all his or her needs at the centre of attention. In parallel with the training of future doctors and nurses, and research into innovative treatment methods and health-preserving measures, the health university provides high-level patient care. Not only do students gain from expert knowledge, so does the whole population. Both young and old can take advantage of this great range of knowledge in the context of media coverage, talks and a great number of events.

Research

New findings regarding the causes of disease, development of preventive measures and working out new treatments are a mark of the success of medical research in Graz.

Services

Student services

The Organisational unit for Teaching and Studies offers students of Med Uni Graz an extensive range of services and at the same time forms the main contact point for supporting students in all matters relating to their studies.

Housing services

Participants are requested to make their own hotel reservations. The Course Secretariat will offer assistance and relevant information material on all practical matters. Graz, capital of the province of Styria, is Austria's second largest city. The Old Town of Graz is one of the best preserved in Europe and was awarded World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999.

Library services

The University Library at the Centre for Medical Research is not just a typical library with the usual resources; instead the rooms and facilities require a much broader definition of the library as a place. Workstations in the conventional sense alternate with comfortable reading zones; small seminar rooms fitted out with modern presentation technology offer place for group-oriented learning.

Student Life

Campus life
