The Department of Internal Medicine is divided into a joint facility and nine divisions. The joint facility encompasses interdisciplinary urgent care with an admission ward, an intensive care unit and a day hospital. In the field of medical care, the Department of Internal Medicine has a dual role. It is responsible for daily urgent care for patients with internal medical issues in Graz and the surrounding area, and as a tertiary referral center, it must also maintain a high level of competence in all subspecialties of internal medicine. Given this dual role, all divisions must make a certain proportion of their beds available to "general patients" from urgent care.
The uniqueness and the added value of our department are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The department is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
