Brief profile

The special characteristic of the Faculty of Medicine at Magdeburg is the indissoluble link between research output, teaching and the academic training of medical doctors, and the treatment of especially severe disease patterns.

Today,  University Medicine, as the second campus at the University of Magdeburg, is the training facility for around 1,500 prospective doctors and at the same time a major centre for medical care in Saxony-Anhalt. The Faculty does not just train students in human medicine, and, since very recently, immunology. It also gives equal priority to research. Students can take advantage of the MAMBA skills lab, a training centre in which future doctors can practice using needles and other techniques outside of classes.
