The University Medicine Greifswald - Clinic and Policlinic for Gynaecology

The University Medicine Greifswald dates back to 17th October 1456, when the University of Greifswald with its medical faculty was founded. Today the University Medicine Greifswald offers a large spectrum of medical services and encompasses a total of 21 clinics/polyclinics, 19 institutes and other important institutes working closely together.

In 2014 all clinics, which are currently distributed across the city, will be relocated to a single location: the newly built clinic building. Following this restructuring the University Medicine Greifswald will be able to work even more efficiently and innovatively, putting it on course to becoming one of the most modern medical institutions in Germany.
