University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden, Germany

Founded in 1815, the University Medical Center in Dresden plays a major role in East Saxony today. It is the only hospital in this region that offers maximum medical care to patients.

For the benefit of its patients, the focus is on the networking of all medical disciplines. Specialists from 21 clinics, three institutes and nine interdisciplinary centres work together to achieve the best possible therapeutic outcomes. More than 53,000 patients per year receive state-of-the-art medical treatment. 4,200 employees are dedicated to providing highly advanced medical care and to maintaining leading standards in research. Teaching this expertise is a core activity at the Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus.

Our staff are committed to excellent service and care. The overall aim of our employees is to understand the needs of every single patient admitted to our hospital. We encourage our employees to engage in continuous learning and further education.


“Sharing experience, discussing and developing ideas together and setting benchmarks is the best way to support continuous improvement of the healthcare systems in Europe.”
