Rheumatologie und Immunologie

The fundamentals of our discipline are taught in required modules XII (Immunology) and XIV (Rheumatology) and in the symptom tracking courses. Electives, literature clubs, diploma theses and the annual Rheuma Summer School allow students to deepen their knowledge in this fascinating area.


Research-led teaching

Since the field of rheumatology and immunology is concerned with people with systemic diseases, it is closely linked to many other medical disciplines. This linkage pertains to patient care as well as research and education. Interdisciplinary lecture series are offered with other subspecialties of internal medicine, the Division of Pathophysiology and Immunology and the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology.


Postgraduate training

The wide range of professional development opportunities at the Medical University of Graz is directed at a variety of occupational groups in the fields of medicine, science and research, nursing and health services. Most of the professional development courses can be completed while the participant is regularly employed and provide him/her with a valuable additional qualification.
