We offer inpatient and outpatient care for all age groups ranging from the smallest premature babies to young adults.
Our central concern is the treatment of chronically and acutely sick children and adolescents according to the principle of “evidence-based medicine”. Due to increasing levels of specialisation in paediatrics and adolescent medicine, multidisciplinary teams of experts are required. We offer inpatient and outpatient care for all age groups ranging from the smallest premature babies to young adults, we take into account the involvement of relatives and place the “child” at the centre of our activities.
In line with the motto “Bringing Specialists to the Child”, we view the development of the “Paediatric Centre” as an essential step towards optimum care via cooperation between the various specialist disciplines.
The University Hospital of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine consists of:
four clinical departments (four departments at the UKKJ – MedUni Wien)
the Teaching core unit
the research areas (note: St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research is an independent area)

Due to its main focus and services, the Children’s Hospital is among the top research institutions in Europe. The OKIDS network centre works in close partnership with the University Hospital of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine (UKKJ) and the Coordination Centre/Centre of Competence for Clinical Trials (CCCT) at MedUni Wien. Thus, know-how and required resources can be provided in an efficient way to accelerate the initiation of studies and the implementation of academic and industry studies.
The Coordination Centre/Centre of Competence for Clinical Trials of the Medical University of Vienna supports clinical studies ranging from project concept to study report. The key aspect of the CCCT is placed on the non-commercial, academic sector, although studies by commercial sponsors are supported as well.
The CCCT offers the following services for clinical studies either as sub-areas or in combination:
General consultation for clinical research projects, support with submissions, notifications to ethics committees and authorities (regulatory affairs) and monitoring
Planning and coordination of clinical studies (project management) and preparation of investigation plans and study reports according to international standards (medical writing)
Preparation of (electronic) check sheets based on international standards (data management)
