Study Medicine at the JKU!

Anyone who chooses to study medicine is a person who knows what he/she wants. The calling is to heal people. You carry responsibility for others right from the start of your studies. Your education is determined by what you want to do later on as a medical doctor.

We have the unique opportunity in Linz to re-think medical education. It starts with a unique Bachelor-Master degree in medicine that is unique in Austria and includes an unparalleled, hands-on educational program that offers a new type of degree in medicine. Newly appointed professors at the new Medical University are now in office and plans to construct new buildings dedicated to research and teaching are finished. Over 400 researchers and educators are ready to provide you with the medical expertise and skills you need to not only engage in the health care system, but to actively take part and shape the future.

The new Kepler University Hospital is Austria's second largest hospital. Our highly-qualified physicians look forward to sharing their hands-on, real-world medical expertise. Medical students quickly come into direct contact with patients, learn to work using sound scientifically-based methods, and acquire skills that let them think outside of the box. Terms such as medical technology, health economics, medical ethics, and medical law are not foreign concepts to future medical professionals educated in Linz.
