The Medical University of Graz has decided to use a number of instruments for checking the effectiveness of and improvements to the QM system regarding the field of “studies, teaching and continuing education". A variety of external and internal procedures supplement each other and illuminate or question different aspects of the quality management since they have a process or structure-oriented focus.
The implementation of a quality management system is one of the tasks of an autonomous university and is indeed anchored in the University Act 2002. To promote quality-oriented further development at higher institutes of education, the valid legal requirements have been laid down since March 2012 in the Quality Assurance Framework Act for tertiary education and a mandatory regular, external inspection of quality management brought about.
The quality management system for Med Uni Graz was unconditionally certified for a period of six years in November 2011.
