The portfolio of the Medical University of Graz is characterized by innovative and practice-oriented education, forward-thinking and excellent research and first-class and personalized patient care. The university follows the biopsychosocial model, which focuses on all aspects of the human being, whose problems arise within a specific environment.

Students in all our programs benefit from early practical experience, seminars and intensive small group instruction. Along with comprehensive expertise, we also value social competence and an ethical attitude. The acquisition of numerous practical skills becomes more intense over the course of the degree program. Our students are able to consolidate medical skills for their later working life at Austria's first clinical skills center—a medical training center.
All Med Uni Graz professional development programs are offered through the Postgraduate School.
