Referral/Teaching Hospital | Jena, Germany

Hospital description

The University Hospital Jena is the only institution of its kind in Thuringia and can look back on a history of more than 200 years. The University’s tradition as a medical school is even older. Ever since the foundation of the University 450 years ago, the School of Medicine has been training and educating doctors-to-be.

Today, the University hospital with a staff of more than 4,600 is the biggest employer in the region. Its 26 clinical centres provide care for more than 300,000 in- and outpatients per year, as well as teaching for 2,400 students of medicine and dentistry. At the Jena University hospital and its 25 institutes, scientists and physicians from more than 25 nations work both in the field of fundamental biomedical research and in patient-related clinical research.

In November 2016 opened the new building of the University Hospital Jena (UKJ) in Jena-Lobeda. With around 50,000 square meters of usable space, the project is one of the largest new clinics in Germany. It will house 13 clinical facilities and two institutes.
