Strong Focus on Holistic and Interdisciplinary Medicine
Two key strengths in the medical degree program at the JKU include hands-on clinical practice and acquiring medical skills early on in the program.
In terms of content, the program in Linz not only builds on conventional subject areas in medicine, but also focuses strongly on organ systems and thematic complexities. The innovative curriculum was developed in close cooperation with experts from renowned German medical schools such as the Berlin Charité and Ruhr University Bochum and includes teaching medicine by looking at the whole. Patients and their illnesses are not viewed in terms of dysfunctional organs or pathology but always as a result of biopsychosocial influences.
