Hannover Medical School unites the activities of a hospital, a university and a research centre.
Hannover Medical School (MHH) is a hospital, university and research centre all in one. Its hospital provides comprehensive care for patients from the region and beyond. The university teaches medicine, dentistry, biochemistry, biomedicine, midwifery and health sciences. The research centre focuses on transplantation, stem cells and regenerative medicine, infection and immunity research, biomedical technology and implant research. Today Hannover Medical School is one of the leading university medical facilities in Germany. It celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015.
Focus on patients
Hannover Medical School has always seen itself as a place dedicated to supporting patients and those needing advice, with its three fields of activity (teaching, research and patient care) working together to fulfil this purpose. Teaching in the university and in schools provides practical training in caring for patients and supports the next generation of scientists. Research yields new insights into the nature and causes of illnesses, and its findings are continually incorporated into patient care and teaching curricula.
Unity, freedom, charity
Following the guiding principles of ‘Unitas, Libertas, Caritas’, more than 8,000 people are committed to serving patients. In addition, there are around 3,500 students on ten courses of study and more than 600 trainees.
