Klinikum rechts der Isar among the top 20 worldwide
For the “Worlds Best Hospitals 2023” list, 80,000 healthcare professionals all over the world were surveyed. As in 2022, Klinikum rechts der Isar is ranked third in the Germany-wide comparison behind Berlin's Charité and Heidelberg University Hospital. The Ludwig Maximilian University Hospital in Munich is ranked 4th. Internationally, the TUM University Hospital was able to improve by two places and is now ranked 20th.
Excellence through interdisciplinary cooperation
Patients at Klinikum rechts der Isar benefit from cutting-edge research in areas such as cancer research, neurology, immune research and cardiology. In addition, the hospital and the Department of Medicine cooperate closely with TUM's other fields of research. This results in numerous advantages for research, teaching and patient care. For example, at TranslaTUM, the Center for Translational Cancer Research, researchers from medicine, engineering and the natural sciences work together to find new approaches to cancer treatment and bring them into application as quickly as possible. As an interdisciplinary research institute, the Munich Insitute for Biomedical Engineering (MIBE) brings together researchers from almost all TUM Schools to develop methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. In the future, new approaches in the fields of data science and artificial intelligence in medicine will be developed at the Center for Digital Medicine and Health and brought into clinical application.
Consolidation with the German Heart Centre Munich
In the years to come, there will be further new opportunities for the field of cardiovascular diseases in Munich: The University Hospital rechts der Isar and the German Heart Centre Munich (DHM) will uinite to form the “University Hospital of the Technical University of Munich” (TUM Klinikum). This was recently decided by the Bavarian Council of Ministers. The declared goal of the State Ministry of Science and the Arts: to underpin Munich's claim to be the number one region in healthcare and medical research in Germany.
