OUR MISSION – THE IDEA BEHIND THE STIFTUNG UNIVERSITÄTSMEDIZIN AACHEN
Healing. Teaching. Research.
Life is a gift. Medicine’s job is to keep it healthy. University medicine is a combination of research, teaching and patient care, providing a threefold service for all. For over 30 years Uniklinik RWTH Aachen has been helping sick people, training doctors to the latest standards and developing innovative methods of detecting and treating diseases.
The Stiftung Universitätsmedizin Aachen aims to intensify bridge building to other research institutions and so make medical advances and the latest diagnosis and treatment methods available to patients faster.
Our foundation helps those active in research, healing and the alleviation of suffering.
Their mission is to support medical care, the transfer of research and clinical applications, and the dissemination of knowledge to future generations of doctors.
