University Heidelberg (Uni HD)

The Heidelberg University with its medical faculty (medical fac.) is, in addition to the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the University Hospital Heidelberg (UKHD), carrier of the KiTZ. More than 600 years of education and research in medicine at the oldest university in Germany lay the foundation to face the great medical challenges of 21st century.

Doctors want to cure illnesses and alleviate suffering. Our goal is to communicate cutting-edge medical knowledge, skills and attitudes. Practical orientation and small group lessons are realized in the university hospital, in teaching hospitals and in medical practices.
