The University Hospital

Mission statement


Our mission statement for the University Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine Tübingen

Our self-image

We live an appreciative way of dealing with each other and with each other. This includes cooperation at eye level in a patient-centred network of clinics, institutes and external partners.
We offer our employees a wide range of development opportunities in a secure environment and optimally prepare our junior staff for their future careers in studies and training. We also keep a close eye on the social challenges of our time.

Our Mission

  • We care for our patients empathetically and competently at the highest medical level.
  • We research and develop new innovative methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in all medical fields. As a university hospital, we are particularly concerned with complex, serious and rare diseases.
  • We shape medical care for the benefit of our patients with forward-looking teaching and training.

Our vision

From Tübingen, we are a driving force behind medical progress both nationally and internationally - close to the people.

Our values


The University Hospital of Tübingen stands for high-quality patient care, research and teaching. It is also a matter of course for us that our actions for our patients are always based on equal treatment and fairness. Any form of discrimination, e.g. on the basis of ethnic origin, gender or religion, is deeply contrary to this self-image.

For our 11,000 employees from over 120 nations, we want a workplace free of prejudice: we are committed to ensuring that they can treat, research and teach in an open-minded environment regardless of their origin, gender or sexual identity. Open-mindedness, tolerance and liberal democratic basic rights are cornerstones to which the University Hospital is expressly committed.
