Welcome to the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf!
In one of the most modern hospitals in Europe, specialists from a wide range of disciplines work together under one roof. The latest medical technology, innovative information technology and an architecture oriented to the care process support doctors, nurses and therapists. In order to make this implementation possible, the UKE uses central core facilities, which provide competent support in important research areas with specialized staff and in which state-of-the-art equipment is always available.
This creates ideal conditions for close networking of cutting-edge medicine, research and teaching at the UKE. More than 14,100 employees are committed to health around the clock - for the benefit of our patients. In the same way, the UKE aims to actively promote an employee-oriented working atmosphere - for the benefit of its employees. The focus is on taking into account individual life situations in addition to professional life, so that sustainable job satisfaction is created.
The UKE offers an excellent reputation, as it belongs to the top group of university hospitals in Germany with 3 SFB, 1 Transregio and 15 research groups in the main research areas. In order to further advance the research dynamics, we maintain numerous national and international cooperations with university and non-university institutions. In this way, we aim to promote interdisciplinary cooperation between scientists from a wide range of disciplines.
As diverse as the research area with all its focal points is, so is the circle of colleagues. The UKE places great emphasis on diversity, which is why there is an interesting mix of students, young researchers from all parts of the world, and experienced lecturers and professors.
