On completing their degree, graduates receive the academic title of doctor of medicine (Dr.med.univ.). This wide-ranging program provides students with comprehensive expertise. Courses include a strong practical element and students get to grips with concrete medical issues at an early stage. The emphasis is on health science topics in a range of disciplines. An additional focus on technology and economics means that graduates will have developed strong interdisciplinary communication and problem-solving skills, and excellent clinical abilities. As a result they are ideally placed to assume the responsibilities of decision-makers in an advanced health care system. The program’s distinctive practical element comes courtesy of our close relations with a network of university hospitals comprising facilities in St Pölten, Krems, and Tulln. The Biomedical Engineering, Health Economics/Health Care Management and Applied Clinical Science electives give prospective physicians the opportunity to carry out specialist research into these topics during their degree.
