General information about the clinic

We have a special mission to provide care for rare diseases This is also in line with our scientific priorities.

Clinical research

We place much importance on the integration of research into daily clinical practice.

We offer young academics and students topics for diploma and master theses, a clinical scientist programme, a doctoral programme and the tenure track option.

The spectrum of research of the University Clinic lies in clinical research and clinically relevant fundamental research (bedside-to-bench). We supervise a large number of multicentric clinical studies. Our declared objective is to provide access to therapy studies for as many patients as possible.

The Medical Faculty at Johannes Kepler University Linz and Kepler University Hospital are committed to advanced medicine and are developing specific plans for a clinical study centre.

Approximately 30,000 outpatients and 6,000 inpatients receive treatment each year.
