Information for patients from abroad

The University

The University Hospital of Tuebingen is renowned far beyond the borders of Germany. In our 17 hospitals and 37 specialist departments, we treat almost 400.000 patients annually in virtually every specialist medical field.

Application Form

If you wish treatment in Tuebingen, please contact us! It is essential that the University Hospital is given in advance as much detailed information as possible about your illness and the treatment desired. 

To the application form

If your knowledge of the German language is limited, you should, if possible, provide an interpreter yourself to translate the medical details of your treatment and any other relevant and important matters.

If you need help in finding one for your inpatient stay, ask our International Patient Unit.


Advance payment of treatment

Patients from abroad are required to deposit the payment for the estimated costs of their treatment into the University Hospital's account prior to their treatment, unless either a domestic health insurance scheme or a domestic third party has agreed to cover these costs.

In order to enable us to determine the estimated costs, it is essential that the University Hospital is given in advance as much detailed information as possible about your illness and the treatment desired. You will be informed of the pre-calculated estimated total cost of your treatment prior to admittance. This amount must be transferred to the University Hospital's bank account prior to admittance.

Should your treatment be more complex than expected (i.e., as a result of complications arising during the course of your treatment, or additional ailments which were previously unknown), the University Hospital Tübingen will issue a further demand for the payment of these additional costs. 

After your final invoice has been calculated, any excess sums which may have been paid will be transferred back to you.

If you have any questions regarding the entry regulations for Germany, we recommend to contact the German diplomatic agencies (embassy, consulate) in your home country of residence. If you have been accepted for treatment, we will be glad to send you the necessary official invitation.
