Institutes and Departments

The more than 100 professors at the Freiburg Faculty of Medicine work at 58 institutes, departments and other institutions, located in the heart of Freiburg and at the Medical Center - University of Freiburg. They carry out first-class research in cooperation with other faculties and research institutions in Freiburg and within national and international networks. Along with research, the medical theory institutes teach our students the scientific foundations of medicine in the first phase of their studies.  In the second phase, the departments of the Medical Center give the students a strong practical connection to their studies. When it comes to patient care, the Medical Center’s 37 departments and the University Heart Center Freiburg - Bad Krozingen provide services far above the national standard.
