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

With a history of over 300 years, the medical faculty is one of the oldest medical schools in Germany and Europe. Germany's first University Hospital was founded here, too. 

It was also here that the first medical doctor title was awarded to a German woman - Dorothea Christiane Erxleben, and where one of the world's largest anatomical collections, the "Meckelsche Sammlungen" was amassed. 

In younger times, the first kidney transplants and open-heart surgeries in the 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 halls and seminar rooms to recently renovated teaching rooms in institutes and clinics in listed buildings. The manageable number of students also helps to guarantee an outstanding education. 

All EU citizens can study medical science or dentistry in Germany. Like Germans, they need to apply at the "Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung" (, the former ZVS.
