Welcome the Faculty of Medicine!

The medical degree program at the new, cutting-edge JKU Faculty of Medicine has a great deal to offer, ranging from the new cutting-edge virtual anatomy lecture hall, the medSPACE, to teaching students about bedside manner. Our homepage provides information about how the medical degree program and medical research are organized at the JKU Linz.


In cooperation with the Kepler University Hospital (KUK) in Linz, the Medical University in Graz, and Upper Austria's medical industry, the JKU Faculty of Medicine is educating and training a new generation of physicians.


A modern curriculum in medical education (modular and organization-centered) including hands-on, real-world practices and tending to patients' needs guarantee the country's best young physicians.

The Faculty of Medicine's clinical research on aging and healthcare research is unique in Austria. Over 66 institutes and departments conduct medically-related research at the JKU, creating a starting point for a future 'medical valley' extending beyond Upper Austria's borders.
