The Faculty of Medicine's defined strategy outlines its goals and priorities, serving to identify long-term and medium-term goals along with operational objectives and measures.



  • A high international level of medical research is made possible by targeting and recruiting internationally recognized scientists/academics as well as networking with collaboration partners in Austria and abroad.
  • State-of-the-art digital technologies are used to not only develop new approaches and support advanced medical expertise, but also increase quality and efficiency in the healthcare system.
  • Innovative support programs (the Clinician and Advanced Clinician Scientist programs) along with supporting mentoring concepts will serve to successfully educate the next generation of medical physicians scholars.

Key Educational and Teaching Objectives

  • Case-based educational curriculum structured with a problem-oriented approach.
  • From the start, students are part of small groups focused on honing medical skills and treating patients. Students work at the Clinical Skills Centers and shadow physicians. Students acquire a strong social skills set and hone communication skills by working in a real-world setting.
  • The educational content and teaching methods are organized on a scientific basis so that students can understand hypotheses, concepts, methods, and their importance in medicine. Students apply new research findings in medicine in an educational atmosphere characterized by research-led education.
  • Strong training in basic medical didactics and supervision ensures the long-time, high quality of our faculty. We provide support in applying new educations formats.
  • We constantly evaluate the quality of education and our students' learning progress, using the feedback to continuously and systematically improve empirically-based and international proven standards.
