Third Mission & Social Commitment

Our social mission

The Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospital of Cologne, together with other faculties of the University, takes its public mission of creating greater value for society vigorously. The Faculty provides open house (i.a. in the University Hospital), public events and lecture series, offers for children and senior citizens as well as participation in external events, partly in cooperation with the Student Council, the University Hospital and cooperation partners. The goal is to sensitize people to socially relevant topics, to keep them informed and to offer people interested a platform for exchanging information and discussion that can be transferred back into science and teaching.

Research Transfer

At the Faculty of Medicine also in cooperation with other faculties, research institutions and universities - research is carried out on questions of diagnosis and therapy of diseases of high social relevance. This results in new treatment options via translation processes, which flow into the treatment of patients. The University Hospital of Cologne, with its clinics and polyclinics, stands as a maximum care provider for an essential carrier of these translation processes: Here, people with complex clinical pictures are treated with the latest technologies and methods.
