Medical Departments at a glance
The Uniklinik RWTH Aachen is home to approximately 40 (multidisciplinary) departments. More than 6,000 employees
work here – some 900 physicians among them – to restore the health of our patients. The multi-professional team of
each department includes professors, medical specialists and nurses. Social workers, speech therapists, psychologists
and nurses with additional qualifications in fields such as wound management or breast care are also available
depending on the area of expertise required. Central services such as physiotherapy and transfusion medicine support
treatment in the departments. The institutes of microbiology, immunology, virology, clinical chemistry, pathology and
neuropathology ensure the highest diagnostic standards.
On the following pages, we introduce the departments that have been successfully treating international patients
for many years now. The departments not described in detail here are no less remarkable. More detailed information
about the services from all departments is available on the website of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen or from the
International Office. You will find contact information at the end of the brochure.
