Welcome

The Medical Faculty and its University Hospital are located in Halle (Saale), in the centre of Germany, close to Berlin, Leipzig, Jena, Weimar and Dresden. 

With a history spanning over 300 years, it is one of the oldest medical schools in Germany and Europe. Germany's first University Hospital was founded here. It was also here that the first medical doctor title was awarded to a woman, and where one of the world's largest anatomical collections was amassed. The first kidney transplants and open-heart surgeries in the former GDR were carried out in Halle.

In line with our long-standing tradition, our medical courses are closely linked to practice, patients and research. We offer highly attractive conditions, which range from modern lecture theatres and seminar rooms to recently renovated teaching rooms in institutes and clinics in listed buildings. The manageable number of students also helps guarantee an outstanding education. 

All EU citizens can study medical science or dentistry in Germany. Like Germans they need to apply at the Central Office for the Allocation of University Places "Zentralstelle für die Vergabe von Studienplätzen” ZVS 

All Non-EU citizens should contact the International Office "Akademisches Auslandsamt” AAA.
